SODDY DAISY, TN (WRCB) -

Dallas Bay Volunteer firefighters quickly put out a fire at a Soddy Daisy home this evening.

The fire happened on Apple Street and was reported at 6:15 p.m.

EMA director Tony Reavley says the flames could be seen at the front of the home when crews arrived.

Firefighters were able to gain control of the fire in less than 15 minutes.

Chief Reavley says no one was home when the fire started and no one was injured.

The Sequoyah Fire Department responded for mutual aid to the scene to assist Dallas Bay; the Red Bank Fire Department responded to stand by at the Dallas Bay Station. Hamilton County Medic 4 responded along with deputies from the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.

One person lived in the home and is being helped by the local Red Cross tonight.
