Six dead in Alcoa fire
An early morning house fire in Alcoa Sunday left six people dead. Alcoa firefighters were called to the North Wright Road home at 5:24 a.m. and found heavy fire engulfing the one-story home. Within five to eight minutes, Alcoa Fire Department Chief Roger Robinson said the flames were brought under control enough to do search and rescue. Robinson said firefighters pulled four people from the home and police and EMS crews performed CPR before rushing at least two of them to the hospital. Two bodies were recovered inside the home in what Robinson called the worst tragedy of his 39-year career. Alcoa Police Chief David Carswell added that the investigation "will be slow, deliberate, methodical."
