Crews doing fire prevention in area of Monday fire

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) - The Chattanooga Fire Department will be handing out fire prevention materials starting at 10 a.m. Wednesday.

Crews will focus in the area of last Monday's fire at 410 N. Hawthorne Street, canvassing the surrounding neighborhood.


Fire officials say the two adults tried to put the fire out with water from the kitchen. When that failed, they tried to shove the couch out the front door, but couldn't get it all the way out. The fire spread to the front porch before firefighters put the fire out.


That's when neighbors, including a Chattanooga Police officer, helped get the three out of the home through a window. No one was hurt. 

Fire officials will also be installing smoke alarms as needed.
