Lenoir City father rescues family from burning home

LENOIR CITY (WATE) - A Lenoir City man woke up Friday morning to find his house in flames. After trying to get his family out of the burning house he realized one child was still inside, so he rushed back in to get the child out.

Everyone got out safely from the two-story house at 507 C Street, but the second floor suffered severe damage from the flames.

Firefighters had to continue fighting the fire after it appeared at first to be out because of flare ups in hot spots. A ladder truck had to be brought in to fight the flames from above.

There is no word yet on what caused the fire.

No injuries were reported.
