A house in Greeneville was heavily damaged by fire Thursday evening.

The Greeneville Fire Department was called to a three story house at 1504 Crestwood Drive around 6:30 PM. Fire Chief Alan Shipley said that flames were visible through the roof when firemen arrived at the scene. Shipley said firemen were able to attack the fire in two upstairs bedrooms and knock that portion of flames back, but that fire from the attic and roof drove those efforts back.

In addition to Greeneville Fire, units from Tusculum, Newmansville and Mosheim Volunteer Fire Departments shuttled water to the scene.

The homeowners were at home at the time of the blaze, but were able to evacuate the house. The attic and upstairs floor sustained heavy fire damage, with smoke and water damage on the ground floor and basement.
