CHATTANOOGA — Chattanooga firefighters responded to a reported house at 1716 Monterey Drive fire shortly after 3:00 this afternoon. Captain Travis Williams, the incident commander, said smoke and flames were visible when the first firefighters arrived on the scene.
Captain Williams said the fire was spreading rapidly, with high winds pushing the flames across the house. In addition to the four fire companies already responding, Captain Williams called for an extra company to help deal with the intense fire.
The firefighters made entry into the house, locating the seat of the fire in the basement, but the flames had penetrated into the walls and got up into the attic.
