Chattanooga firefighters carried a woman from a burning house Thursday afternoon, according to a release from the department's Public Information Officer Bruce Garner.
Firefighters were dispatched to the home in the 4600 block of Highland Avenue at approximately 4 p.m. and were told a woman might still be inside.
Lt. Shaun Hinosa and firefighter Julio Vargas found the woman unable to move in a hospital bed in the front bedroom, according to the release. Lt. Tyler Swindell and firefighter Preston Binegar with Squad 1 joined to help, and the four carried the woman out to a waiting ambulance.
Battalion Chief Ashley May did not believe the woman was injured, but she was taken to a hospital as a precaution.
The dollar loss for the home was estimated at $40,000, according to the release.
The lead investigator determined the fire was accidental and was likely caused by an unattended space heater.
