Electrical Fire Damages Church

An East Knoxville church was damaged by fire this morning.

"Several callers" reported fire around 7:30 a.m. at the Universal Church of Deliverance, 2166 Magnolia Ave., according to Knoxville Fire Dept. Capt. D.J. Corcoran.

Firefighters had the blaze under control about 8 a.m. but were continuing to check for hot spots, Corcoran said. There were no injuries.

Investigators determined that it was an electrical fire that started in the basement. Most of the damage was to interior walls, Corcoran said.

The building has a brick exterior. It is an old house that was used as a business for many years and has been home to the church since 2001, Corcoran said.
