Chattanooga firefighters have busy Monday
CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – The firefighting day started early on Monday for the Green shift in Chattanooga.
They responded to a structure fire right next to I 24 in Lookout Valley before dawn.
It happened at the end of Park Lane right next to the interstate near Brown’s Ferry Road around 4 AM.
They found the fire was in a detached garage that was serving as a chicken coop.
Firefighters blame the fire on a heat lamp for the chickens outside the garage.
Several of the chickens perished.
Then around 8:30 AM, firefighters were called to a home on Calhoun Avenue, a block off of Rossville Boulevard.
The building had been condemned.
No one was hurt.
The cause of that fire is under investigation.
