Chattanooga firefighters battled a duplex fire Thursday night.

The call came in shortly before 9:00pm, and firefighters responded to the building on Woodmore Lane.

CFD Captain Kevin Carpenter said the firefighters were able to get the fire under control quickly.

The duplex sustained enough damage to displace two families. CFD spokesman Bruce Garner said that volunteers with the American Red Cross were called in to provide assistance to the residents affected by the fire.
