CFD responds to residential house fire

Department's Deputy Chief says house suffered severe damage

CLEVELAND, Tenn. (WDEF) — The Cleveland Fire Department was dispatched this morning to a residential house fire on the 2700 block of Henderson Avenue in Cleveland.

CFD Deputy Chief Pete VanDusen said the house suffered “substantial damage,” and that the fire made its way through roughly 60% of the home.

The residence will, more than likely, no longer be “habitable.”

“We responded with our typical structure fire response of five units,” VanDusen said. “Four minutes after dispatch, first unit was on the scene [and] reported heavy fire showing from the front of the residence.”

VanDusen said that one woman on the scene was treated by Bradley County EMS before being transferred to a nearby hospital.

The cause of the fire is still currently under investigation.
