An early morning fire on Monday caused extensive damage to an industry off Bonny Oaks Drive.
At 1205am the Chattanooga Fire Department was dispatched to a reported commercial structure fire at 4019 Industry Dr. Six fire companies responded initially and found flames coming from the roof of the building.
The captain of Quint 6 quickly called for a second alarm bringing six additional fire companies to the scene due to the size of the structure and amount of fire that was visible.
Companies on scene made an attack with two aerial apparatus and brought the fire under control within an hour. There were no injuries with this incident.
The cause of the fire appears to be a malfunction with a vent system for processing equipment. The dollar loss is estimated at $75,000.
The Fire Department was assisted by Hamilton County Emergency Services, EPB and the Chattanooga Police Department.
