Roman god assists with downtown Knoxville revitalization


Vulcan, Roman god of fire, managed to hold off firefighters and assist with downtown revitalization last night by removing portions of yet another worthless old house from Hill Avenue near the riverfront. Although a large portion of the building has been burned, the fate of the building will remain under debate due to its location in the historic Maplehurst Park because many locals believe that the historic nature of the building is held within the ash and falling timbers.
