House fire on the W Road

WALDENS RIDGE, Tennessee (WDEF) – An early morning fire on the side of Signal Mountain created quite a water challenge for Waldens Ridge Emergency Services.

The fire happened at a home on the W Road around 6 AM.

But there are not fire hydrants on the road up the mountain.

So WRES firefighters had to set up a “Tanker Shuttle” to ferry trucks with water the scene along the tight road.

Chattanooga fire and Dallas Bay Volunteers helped out with the shuttle.

No one was home at the time and no one was injured.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
