Area deputies hospitalized after bursting into burning home

Two Unicoi County Sheriff's Office deputies were hospitalized after bursting into a burning home to search for anyone who might have been trapped inside.

According to the USCO, Cpl. Eric Borchgrevink and Deputy Paul Osborne were among emergency personnel to respond to a house fire at 1137 N. Buffalo St., Erwin, shortly before 4 a.m. Thursday.

Both men were familiar with the home and believed three children could be inside, so they entered the burning house to search for them.
