Chattanooga FD crews responded to a large tree that fell on a house off 5th Avenue. CFD says the fire came down on top of the living room area, causing significant structural damage. The two residents were inside the home when the tree fell, but luckily, they weren't injured. CFD believes the tree fall was weather-related, caused by strong winds. The Red Cross will be assisting the residents and their dog.
A portion of Scenic Highway is closed for several hours from East Brow Road to 906 S Scenic Hwy due to downed trees and power lines.
Chattanooga PD says a tree was down on Hixson Pike but has since been removed.
Meanwhile, on Belvoir Avenue in East Ridge, a downed tree struck a vehicle and power lines. EPB is working to restore power. An occupant was trapped inside the vehicle. The occupant was rescued with minor injuries and refused hospital treatment.
