Home Damaged By Fire In Lookout Valley Sunday Afternoon

Sunday, September 24, 2017

A home was damaged extensively by fire Sunday afternoon in Lookout Valley.

At approximately 3 p.m., the Chattanooga Fire Department dispatched multiple companies to 1203 O’ Grady Drive in Lookout Valley for a smoke investigation.

First arriving units found a large two-story house involved with heavy fire and smoke. An initial interior attack was made, but due to heavy fire and structural instability fire fighters were pulled outside.

There was nobody home at the time of the fire.

Information is limited at this time, but the house suffered extensive damage and due to roof construction (tin roof) it made fire fighting difficult.

It took nine fire companies approximately 45 minutes to get the fire under control. Companies on scene were Quint 2, Engine 5, Squad 1, Ladder 1, Quint 14, Quint 1, Squad 20, Quint 3, and Quint 13. Battalion Chiefs #1 and #3 were also on scene.

The fire is under investigation and no dollar loss was available. There were no injuries. Chattanooga Police, HCEMS, and Hamilton County Rehab also provided assistance on the call.
