A Walden's Ridge home under construction was destroyed by fire Wednesday morning. 

At 5:45 a.m., a neighbor called 911 reporting a possible house fire located at 2077 Sitton Mills Place, according to a news release. Upon arrival, Walden's Ridge Emergency Services reported a fully involved house fire.

Due to the size of the home — 5,000 square feet — additional fire apparatus and manpower were requested and the Signal Mountain Fire Department and Lone Oak Fire Department responded to the scene.
