Three adults and two children are homeless after a fire swept through an East Lake home Wednesday night, Chattanooga Fire Department spokesman Bruce Garner said.

The fire started just before 8 p.m. Wednesday at 4207 10th Ave., and the fire department responded with four companies. The house was cluttered and had several roof additions, which made it difficult for firefighters to find and extinguish the fire, Garner said.

Still, the blaze was under control within 30 minutes, and no one was injured. Most damage was in the kitchen and garage, Garner said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Volunteers with the American Red Cross were called in to help the family.
