Smoke investigation leads to house fire on Cedar Lane
The Chattanooga Fire Department was called to a neighborhood near the airport early Tuesday morning because smoke was seen coming from a building. The call was made by the FAA tower.
Crews searched the area and discovered smoke coming from a home on Cedar Lane.
No one was in the house, so firefighters forced open the door. A fire was found in a bedroom at the rear of the house and quickly put out.
The damage from the fire is estimated at $15,000.
The cause is under investigation.
