Dryer Fire Causes Minimum Damage At The Honors Golf Course

  • Tuesday, June 23, 2015

A dryer fire caused minimal damages at the Honors Golf Course in Ooltewah on Monday night.

At 8 p.m., an employee from the course called 911 reporting a fire at 9603 Lee Highway. The Tri-Community Volunteer Fire Department responded and reported heavy smoke coming from the caddy building behind the main clubhouse.

Firefighters entered the building to find Honors Course employees using a fire extinguisher on a fire inside the dryer. Firefighters finished putting out the fire within minutes.

No injuries were reported, but Hamilton County EMS was on the scene for any potential injuries to firefighters.

Fire officials from the Tri-Community Volunteer Fire Department reported the employees from the Honors Course were using a gas-operated washer and dryer towels containing cooking grease. The heat from the dryer started a reaction from the grease on the towels.

The caddy building, which houses the golf carts and laundry room, sustained minimum damages estimated at $3,500.
