Rural Metro Fire battled a car fire in West Knoxville on Thursday. A passing medic crew noticed a car engulfed in flames near a home on Constance Way and called the fire department at 11:35 a.m. to report the incident.

When crews arrived on the scene, they discovered a fully involved car fire with flames extending into a home on the 8500 block of Constance Way. The resident told Rural Metro they were completely unaware of the fire outside until they were notified by emergency personnel.

A representative with Rural Metro Fire said the blaze was quickly knocked down with only smoke making its way into the home and leaving minimal damage to the exterior of the home. Officials said there were no injuries related to the incident.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
