MORRISTOWN, Tenn. (WATE) — Two people were injured after a house fire Tuesday afternoon, according to Morristown Fire Department spokesperson Danny Case.
Several fire departments responded to a house fire on Fish Hatchery Road. Case said Morristown Fire, West, South and East Hamblen County Volunteer Fire Departments joined the effort to fight the flames.
According to South Hamblen County Volunteer Fire Department Chief Kevin Jarnagin, the location of the fire made it a challenge to put out quickly. The firefighters had to carry the water to the house fire because the trucks were too large to drive up the hill.
Two people were reported with burn injuries. They were airlifted to the Morristown Hamblen Hospital.
Firefighters remained at the scene for some time trying to extinguish the fire.
