06-02-15 Fire Damages Duplex in Shawnee Hills

The first firefighters on the scene with Engine 15 observed heavy smoke and flames coming from the a window on the right side of the duplex. Due to the distance of the structure from the nearest hydrant, Battalion Chief Rick Boatwright requested two additional fire companies to assist with the long water supply line, and for additional personnel on the scene. With the hot temperatures and high humidity, extra precautions are being taken to keep the firefighters hydrated, and to rotate the crews on fire scenes.

Captain Danny Usher with Engine 15 said the firefighters took in a hand-held hoseline to make an interior attack, and had the fire out within 10 minutes. The fire damage was contained to a couple of rooms. The rest of that side of the duplex had smoke and water damage. No injuries were reported. An estimate on the dollar loss was not available.

An adult male on the scene told firefighters that he was just in the process of moving into one side of the duplex this morning. The other side is unoccupied. The cause of the fire is under investigation. Volunteers with the American Red Cross of Southeast Tennessee were requested to provide assistance to the man displaced by the fire. s2m2 police, Hamilton County EMS and EPB also provided assistance on the scene.
