A coughing man called 911 dispatchers early Wednesday to report his smoke alarms were going off and smoke was filling the house. The dispatcher instructed the caller to hang up and get everyone out, officials said, but he may have tried to save the house instead.
After firefighters responded to the call at 171 Ash Cabin Hollow Road, a man was found dead inside.
Roane County Sheriff Office Jack Stockton said the victim was John Wayne Trew Jr.
