The Knoxville Rural Fire Department and the Marion County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a house fire near the intersection of Jesup Drive and highway S71 northeast of Knoxville at approximately 1:00 this morning. Rural Fire Chief Kenny Thompson tells KNIA/KRLS news the home was unoccupied and people were cleaning the residence the day before. Thompson says a fan was left on near aerosol cans, which ended up exploding and starting the fire. No one was injured and the home primarily suffered smoke damage.
