WASHINGTON COUNTY, Tenn. -

Fire crews were on the scene of a house fire on Cherry Lane in Fall Branch Thursday morning. View photos from the scene

The call came in around 10:30 in the morning.

News 5 WCYB spoke with the chief of the Fall Branch volunteer fire department; he told us the fire was initially reported as a brush fire but was quickly upgraded to a house fire.

Crews battled the blaze at the corner of Cherry Lane and Highway 93. Emergency officials say there were no reports of injuries as of 1 p.m. on Thursday.

We're told the home was destroyed in the fire, but no one was home at the time.

News 5 WCYB has a crew working on the story and we will have more later today online and on News 5 At 5 p.m.
