This from East Ridge Fire Chief Mike Williams:
On Friday morning, July 5, at approximately 0039 a.m., East Ridge Fire, Police and Memorial EMS were dispatched to a reported residential fire with one occupant still inside at 1925 Close Rd.
First arriving fire units reported that all occupants were out and heavy smoke and fire was coming from the residence. An “all call” was requested for off duty personnel for more manpower and Hamilton County Rescue Rehab.
Firefighters made an aggressive interior attack and extinguished the fire that had extended into the attic. The American Red Cross was called to the scene to assist the occupants.
No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is under investigation. Fire damage is estimated to be about $ 30,000.
Great job to all that were involved.
