KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — An East Knoxville RV fire killed a dog and left one person injured on Saturday, according to the Knoxville Fire Department.
The fire department tweeted about the fire on Woodbine Avenue around 11:30 a.m., posting an image of what appeared to be a column of black smoke rising in the distance.

A dog was also found dead inside of the RV.
The motorhome was destroyed by the fire, Wilbanks said.
