Firefighters draw water from Tennessee River to battle Suck Creek Road flames
HAMILTON COUNTY, Tennessee (WDEF) – A variety of fire agencies battled a blaze this evening along the Tennessee River near the gorge.
It happened at a home at 1907 Suck Creek Road just before 8PM.
A driver noticed the smoke and flames coming from the house and called it in.
Crews from Red Bank, Waldens Ridge, and Chattanooga responded.
Since there were no hydrants in the area, crews had to pull water out of the river to fight the flames.
The homeowner was not at home at the time.
The cause is under investigation.
