No injuries were reported in a Tuesday night house fire in Chattanooga.
The Chattanooga Fire Department got the call at 6:33 p.m. Tuesday to 3422 Persimmon Lane. Lt. Danny Usher with Quint 21 said smoke and flames were visible on the back of the home when the first firefighters arrived. The fire was beginning to spread into the kitchen but the firefighters got the blaze contained and under control in roughly 15 minutes. They estimated $30,000 in damages.
Battalion Chief Rick Boatwright said the cause of the fire appeared to be from improperly discarded smoking materials on the back porch.
Volunteers with the American Red Cross of Southeast Tennessee were called to provide assistance to the family.
