Lightning believed to be cause of fire at business
CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- Chattanooga firefighters responded to a debris fire at Bare Metals LLC located at 2912 Market Street during the storms that moved through the area, Friday afternoon.
Witnesses at the business stated they saw lighting hit behind the business and the debris began smoking.
Fire crews who were clearing an earlier call in the area saw the column of smoke and responded to the business.
When they arrived on-scene they found several cars as well as other materials waiting to be recycled burning. The firefighters quickly extinguished the fire before it spread to any adjacent buildings.
Market Street was shut down for a short time because firefighters laid a water supply line from the hydrant across the street from the business.
