Ringgold family loses everything in house fire

A family of three loses everything in a house fire last night.

Brandon Bowman, who’s a close friend of the Carroll family, says two of them suffered from smoke inhalation, but they’re believed to be O-K.

Catoosa County Fire Chief Randy Camp says a 9-1-1 call came in around 9:30.

It was so windy, the fire spread a half acre into the back woods.

It started in the kitchen and was ruled accidental.

The family was renting, and didn’t have insurance.

The home is a total loss.

The family is staying with friends until other arrangements can be made.

Units from Catoosa County, Fort Oglethorpe and Georgia Forestry all responded.
