Grove Street Fire

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – A second floor apartment suffered major damage from a fire this morning at the Golden Gateway Apartments.

It happened around 10:45 AM at 1110 Grove Street, which is a block off of West MLK Boulevard.

The complex was evacuated as the smoke alarms went off.

Firefighters had the flames under control in about 15 minutes.

No one was hurt.

Investigators say it looks like the fire was intentionally set.

A large fire hit the other side of the building on Labor Day.

In that fire, a woman was injured after getting trapped on the second floor and having to be rescued.

Most of the building was damaged by the fire.

But fire officials say the two cases are not connected.
