House Fire near National Cemetery this morning
CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – Chattanooga firefighters battled a blaze at an old home near the National Cemetery downtown.
They got the call around 11 AM to Slayton Avenue near Central and Main.
With flames showing on the backside of the house, firefighters went in to make sure no one was still inside.
Everyone was out.
It took crews about 20 minutes to bring the fire under control, but not before there was substantial damage.
Two residents were displaced by the fire.
One of them was one of 16 children raised in the home over the years.
His brothers reminisced with us about the neighborhood history in that home.
