Six people lose home in large fire in Franklin County

Six people are out of their home after a fire in the Franklin County town of Boones Mill.

The fire started near the furnace of that large, two-story home on Rocky Top Drive around 12:30 a.m. Friday.

A woman who lives there thought she heard running water and got out of bed to check it out. Turns out her house was on fire.

She quickly woke up her husband, three young children, and another adult who lives there. They were all able to get out safely.

It took firefighters from seven fire departments five hours to completely put out the fire.
