A Red Bank house caught fire today for the second time in a week, Hamilton County officials say.

The Red Bank Fire Department responded to the 401 Hedgewood Drive around 11:45 a.m. Tuesday, finding heavy smoke and fire pouring out of the upstairs windows and roofline, said Hamilton County Emergency Management Agency spokeswoman Amy Maxwell.

Red Bank Fire Chief Mark Matthews said last week’s fire was in a different section of the three-apartment structure.

Along with Dallas Bay Volunteer Fire Department and Walden’s Ridge Emergency Services, Red Bank’s department contained the blaze to the top apartment. It was extinguished in 10 minutes, said Maxwell.

No one was currently living in the three apartments due to the fire that occurred last week, Maxwell said.

Red Bank Fire officials will be conducting an investigation as to the cause of the fire. The owner of the residence is unknown at this time, Maxwell said.

Anyone with additional information is asked to contact the Red Bank Police Department.
