SIGNAL MOUNTAIN, TN (WRCB) -

Several fire agencies were called to a large fire that destroyed a home on Signal Mountain Monday afternoon.

The fire was reported from Mountain Hollow Drive at around 4:40 p.m.

Hamilton County EMS spokeswoman Amy Maxwell says firefighters saw heavy smoke and huge flames coming from the home when they arrived.

Maxwell says the fire started in an upstairs bedroom.

The cause is unknown and under investigation.

Damages are estimated at $400,000.
