A Chattanooga family escapes house fire
It happened just after 11:00 am at 2901 Diane Lane.
A Chattanooga family was getting ready for church this morning when they heard a loud pop on the back side of the house. The pop they heard was apparently a window busting from intense flames on the outside of the house. Larry Erskine, his wife Nicole and their two-year-old daughter got out of the house without injury and called 911.
Officials say the fire spread rapidly through the house and the smoke could be seen for miles around. Firefighters managed to save two of the family’s three dogs.
It took 45 minutes to get the blaze under control. An estimate on the dollar loss is not available at this time but there is substantial damage to the four bedroom home.
