SULLIVAN COUNTY, Tenn. -

Crews are still wrapping up Monday morning at the scene of a house fire in Kingsport.

Sullivan County dispatchers tell us the fire started around 8:30 Sunday night at a home on South Wind Drive.

We're told the Warrior's Path Volunteer Fire Department received a call of a fire on the back porch of a residence. They tell us they responded within seven minutes and the majority of the home was under flames.

Fire officials say the closest fire hydrant is a quarter-mile away from the residence, so several agencies were called to assist. Other departments were put on standby as a precaution. They tell us seven fire departments were at the scene of the fire.

No homeowners were home at the time of the fire, and no injuries were reported. The home has been declared a total loss. The fire is under investigation by the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office.
