04-21-16 Duplex Fire Displaces Residents in Hixson

An adult male resident told firefighters that he was inside the duplex when he discovered the fire. As the man attempted to get out, he injured himself. A paramedic/supervisor with Hamilton County EMS said the man was transported to a local hospital with an injury to one hand.

Once the fire got into the attic, the flames quickly spread across the duplex, eventually breaking through the roof.It took the firefighters at least 30 minutes to get the blaze under control. Four fire companies initially responded to this fire, but the duplex is located up on a steep hill. Chief Warren called for a fifth company to set up at the hill to boost water pressure for the firefighters fighting the fire.

An estimate on the dollar loss as not available and it is not known how many people lived in the duplex. Chief Warren said no one appeared to be inside the left side of the duplex when firefighters arrived. The cause of the fire is under investigation. s2m2 police and s2m2-Hamilton County Rescue also provided valuable assistance on the scene.
