A fire destroyed a home in the Soddy Daisy area Thursday morning.
A 911 call was made by a neighbor, reporting a house fire at 1139 Old Thatcher Road. The Sequoyah Volunteer Fire Department responded and arrived reporting heavy smoke pouring out of the eaves.

Within five minutes after the first unit arrived on the scene, fire officials notified dispatch and reported flames shooting though the roof.
The homeowner, Wayne Snyder, spoke to officials reporting that the renter, Heather Farley, had been evicted from the house a few weeks ago.
No injuries were reported, but Hamilton County EMS was on the scene for any potential injuries.
The cause of the fire is undetermined and will be under investigation by the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.
Damages to the house are a total loss and valued at $125,000.
