HIXSON, TN (WRCB) - A duplex fire Thursday morning on Cary Lane in Hixson damaged the structure, but resulted in no injuries because the occupants weren't home.

Chattanooga firefighters went into both sides of the duplex to extinguish the fire, but managed to contain the fire to only one side, CFD's Bruce Garner said in a news release.

The damaged side of the duplex reportedly housed three adults, who declined temporary housing assistance from the American Red Cross, since they told firefighters they had places to stay afterwards.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation; no cost estimate for the damage has been made.
