BRADLEY COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -

UPDATE: A Bradley County home is destroyed after an early morning fire on Dean Drive.

The fire began around 2:30 a.m. Monday in the basement of the home.

The homeowner woke up to the smell of smoke, called 911, and escaped through a bedroom window. He told fire investigators he did not hear a smoke detector.

Five companies responded to fight the fire. When firefighters went inside, they realized it was coming from below and retreated to fight it defensively.

The 3,000 square foot home is valued at $280,000 and considered a total loss. No one was injured.  

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but officials believe it started in the basement. 

The Bradley County fire department had mutual aid assistance from Polk County and Highway 59 fire companies.
