Firefighters pulled two victims from a Knoxville (TN) fire that killed another person Sunday night, according to a report from the Knoxville News Sentinel.

The paper reported that a man was killed in a fire at the Williamsburg Village Apartments. The Knoxville Fire Department (KFD) responded at 10:22 p.m., and several people were reportedly trapped by smoke and flames inside a ground-floor unit.

Firefighters found one female victim just inside the apartment door. A second female victim was found in a back bedroom. The deceased victim was found in the front bedroom.

“We found two victims inside and were able to get them out,” KFD Capt. D.J. Corcoran said. “One victim was overcome by the smoke and was deceased on the scene.”

According to WVLT, investigators determined that the cause of the fire was the “careless discard and/or use of cigarettes.”
