A Knoxville woman was overcome by smoke when a fire sparked inside her home Wednesday afternoon on Skyline Drive in East Knoxville.
The woman told firefighters she first saw a spark from an extension cord, which then spread quickly to her mattress. She attempted to put the fire out with a blanket, but was overcome by smoke.
Firefighters say there is smoke damage throughout the home.
Paramedics treated the woman on scene.
No one else was hurt.
