Home destroyed by fire in Kenton Ridge subdivision
CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – A woman and her pets escaped a house fire this morning in the Shallowford Road/Hickory Valley area.
You could see the smoke from miles away.
The fire happened at a home in the Kenton Ridge subdivision.
It was first reported by someone driving by the house.
Firefighters tried to enter the home but were driven back by the flames.
They were pulled back for their safety, and the roof soon collapsed afterwards.
The home is a total loss and will have to be torn down.
But firefighters kept it from spreading to either house next door.
One of them did have minor damage.
The cause is under investigation.
