Blount County firefighters responded to the call of a fire at a small apartment building in Eagleton Village early Saturday morning.

It happened just after 4 a.m. on Defoe Circle. Upon arrival firefighters found part of the one story building on fire. Crews evacuated the rest of the building, and were able to put out the flames.

Firefighters say approximately 30 percent of the building was destroyed, and the part that burned was vacant.

Officials say no one was injured in the fire and everyone got out safely.

The American Red Cross was called as a precaution, but crews at the scene said their services were not immediately needed.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
