Officials with Lily Fire and Rescue responded to a house fire at the Park Hills Road and Pace Lane intersection.

Firefighters say the entire house was in flames when they arrived Friday night.

Neighbors told officials the house was vacant and an explosion was heard just before the fire.

Mike Sanchez sent footage of the fire to WYMT.

"There was a loud explosion before the fire erupted," he said. "We live a little less than a quarter mile from that house and it shook our home."

WYMT reached out to the Knox County Coroner's Office. They say they were not called to the scene.

West Knox Fire Rescue helped extinguish the fire. Corbin Police Department and Kentucky State Police were also on the scene.

Officials say there are no injuries reported at this time.
