The Knoxville Fire Department is investigating a fire at a vacant East Knoxville house.

KFD responded to the scene at Cherry Street and Jefferson Avenue Tuesday evening. The house didn't have power, so firefighters think a squatter may have started it.

KFD says there weren't any injuries, and crews got the fire under control shortly after they arrived.

The arson division is now looking into what may have caused it.
