Garage fire causes $100K in damage to Hixson home

Posted: Updated:
HIXSON, TN (WRCB) -  A fire caused substantial damage to a home in Hixson at 6208 North Innisbrook Drive early Saturday morning. 

The Chattanooga Fire Department received the call around 3 a.m. and responded with five fire companies.

Battalion Chief Charles Patten told Channel 3 the smoke and flames were visible in the attached garage when the first firefighters arrived on the scene. 

The two adults who were in the house at the time got out safely and were located at a neighbor's house across the street.

Fire investigators tell Channel 3 the fire started in the attached garage and that flames consumed a car inside the garage and spread rapidly into the attic before firefighters got the blaze under control. The dollar loss was estimated at around $100,000.

The cause of the fire is being ruled accidental, though what exactly sparked the blaze remains undetermined.
