KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The Knoxville Fire Department said an abandoned home in Knoxville was a total loss after a fire early Sunday morning.

Crews responded at approximately 9:00 a.m. to 1735 Maryland Avenue. On arrival, heavy fire was observed coming from the structure; therefore, the incident commander deemed the fire defensive only after crews had to pull back from going inside.

According to KFD, the home was vacant and had not been occupied recently. No injuries were reported, but the house was a total loss.

The cause of the fire will be under investigation by KFD arson investigators.
