A late night house fire sent three people to the hospital including two Knoxville police officers.

Around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday night dispatchers received a call from a woman who was trapped in her basement on East Morellia Avenue by fire.

When fire fighters and police officers arrived on scene they began searching the home.

They eventually found the woman through the black smoke lying on her garage floor.

She along with two Knoxville police officers were taken to UT Medical Center for non-life threatening smoke inhalation.

The victim told fire officials that she accidentally knocked over a candle starting the fire.

Fire investigators are still looking into the cause.
