Battling house fire

Firefighters douse hot spots and tear down siding and insulation as they work to extinguish a house fire at 1551 Dockery Hollow Road in the Jones Cove area on Friday afternoon. The home’s interior was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived, and they worked to put out the stubborn fire, which was in the walls and attic. The Sevier County, Caton’s Chapel and Pittman Center volunteer fire departments responded. There was no one home at the time, and the cause is under investigation. In the other photo, firefighters take a break to rest and change tanks as more firefighters arrive to work the scene.
