Rogersville family of seven escapes from early morning fire

ROGERSVILLE — Seven people including three children were hospitalized for smoke inhalation after escaping from an early morning fire in their home on Burem Road just south of Rogersville.

The father of three small children in the house told firefighters he doesn’t know why he woke up suddenly, but he was awakened, saw the fire, and his family escaped with their lives.

Four adults and three children ages 4, 4, and 5 were treated and released for smoke inhalation from the Hawkins County Memorial Hospital.
