Chattanooga firefighters on Tuesday afternoon responded for the second time in two years to a fire at 111 Baker St. in North Chattanooga.
Captain Tally Glover with Quint 2 said heavy smoke was showing from the attic when the first firefighters arrived shortly before 4 p.m. Captain Glover said that as his fire truck pulled up to the house, he saw a man on the front porch. When the man walked inside the house, Captain Glover ran up to the house, yelling for him to get out. The man came out immediately, and, while the firefighters worked to get the blaze under control, the man apparently left the scene.
Battalion Chief Charles Patton said the firefighters found most of the fire in the attic and got the fire out fairly quickly. The firefighters had to contend with a bee's nest while extinguishing the fire in the attic. Even with the extra hazard, no injuries were reported.
The first fire was on Oct. 17. Like the first fire, the cause of this fire is under investigation.
Chattanooga police and Hamilton County EMS also provided assistance.
