KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A Knoxville man was able to escape a house fire Monday morning that officials say started in a laundry room.

The Knoxville Fire Department says it was sent to 1714 Ambling Drive around 9:40 a.m. The first crews to arrive on scene reported light smoke coming from the home.

The father of the seven member household was the only one home when the fire broke out. He was able to get out of the smoke filled house before calling 911.

Firefighters were able to contain the fire to the laundry room. No injuries were reported and the fire appears to be accidental.
