Fire destroys Mowbray Mountain home

MOWBRAY MOUNTAIN, Tenn. (WDEF) – Mowbray Volunteer Fire Department battled a house fire on Hot Water Road on Mowbray Mountain.

Hamilton County EMS spokesperson Amy Maxwell reports MVFD Chief Chris Weddington was the first unit on the scene reporting fire showing on the left front corner of the house.

Maxwell said he immediately requested a mutual aid response for Sequoyah VFD and Dallas Bay VFD to respond to the scene. Fire spread quickly throughout the double-wide mobile home so firefighters conducted a defensive attack to contain the fire to the single structure.

No injuries were reported but Hamilton County EMS was on the scene for any potential injuries to do the firefighters.

No one was home at the time of the fire.

The cause of the fire will be under investigation by the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office.

Damages are listed at $35,000.
