Rockford house fire
local picture
Fire trucks from Chattanooga and Rockford sit parked near the home of Van Cross, west of Rockford, as firefighters battle an attic blaze apparently started by a lightning strike. A truck driver reportedly spotted smoke coming from the house at 1119 state Route 707. Thirty firefighters and four trucks responded to the 7:54 a.m. emergency call. They ventilated the roof and entered the attic through an upstairs bedroom to access flames. Chattanooga Fire Chief Doug Brehm estimated damage at $25,000 to $30,000 and said catching the fire early prevented a total loss. The owners, who reportedly have insurance, were not home at the time.
