Smoke poured from the Lloyd Knight residence at 5726 Asheville Highway about 6 a.m. on Sunday as firefighters from the Cedar Creek and South Greene Volunteer Fire Departments worked to extinguish a fire there.

A fire that apparently started near a heater in a utility room damaged a house in the 5700 block of the Asheville Highway about 6 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 3.

A report about the fire that was filed Sunday by Deputy Sheriff Adam Arrington said home owner Lloyd Knight was awakened by a smoke alarm and escaped the residence at 5726 Asheville Highway unharmed.

Johnny Powers, chief of the South Greeneville Volunteer Fire Department, said the blaze apparently began in a utility room that had been added to the double-wide mobile home.

"We believe it began near a heater in the utility room," Powers said.

He said the fire burned through the ceiling of the utility room and spread into the attic above a carport adjacent to the utility room.

Firefighters were able to confine the blaze to the utility room and the attic above the carport, Powers said, but the rest of the residence sustained some smoke damage.


Powers said fire-fighting efforts were complicated by temperatures that were as low as 10 degrees.

He noted that firefighters from the South Greene and Cedar Creek Volunteer Fire Departments remained on the scene for about two and half hours in sub-freezing temperatures.

Powers said that the South Greene VFD sent four trucks to the fire scene, while the Cedar Creek VFD responded with two trucks.

A total of 24 volunteer firefighters from the two departments responded to the fire, according to Powers.
