KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The Historic Fort Sanders neighborhood tops Knox Heritage's 2014 "Fragile 15" list of endangered historic places.

The group announced the list Thursday morning at Oakwood Elementary School, which was itself on the list at one time. The current owner of the building, Family Pride Corporation, is restoring the building to be reused as a senior living facility scheduled to open this fall.
