NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Seven people were hospitalized after a house fire started near Bordeaux early Wednesday morning.

The fire was reported at about 3:15a.m. at a home on Kingview Drive.

Firefighters confirm two of the people who were in the home were disabled.

Crews said they arrived to see heavy smoke coming from the home. They said most of the damage is smoke-related.

All seven people who were in the home were taken to a local hospital to be treated for smoke-related injuries.
