UPDATE: Semi fire spreads to Wilkesview Drive home

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- Chattanooga firefighters were called to a duplex fire in the Highway 58 area Thursday night.

It began around 7:00 p.m. in the 4200 block of Wilkesview Drive.

Spokesman Bruce Garner says a semi parked beside the unit caught fire, causing flames to spread to the attic of the duplex.

Firefighters were able to put out the fire quickly.

Garner says EPB was forced to cut power to the duplex, due to the damaged wiring caused by the fire.

For that reason, two adults and two children are without a place to stay.

The Red Cross is assisting the family.

No injuries were reported.
