News Releases

A woman was taken to the hospital after diving out of the way of an SUV that jumped the curb at a Chattanooga shopping center.

CFD was called to the Five Below on Hamilton Place Boulevard at 2:15 PM Monday.

The driver of a white SUV said she wasn’t sure what happened, but her vehicle went up onto the curb and struck the front of the store.

A shopper walking by saw what was happening and leapt out of the way, suffering minor injuries to her knee and her hand. She was transported to the hospital.

There’s doesn’t appear to be any structural damage to the store, according to responding fire officials. A Chattanooga building inspector was called out to the scene.

The white SUV was left with front end damage and there was some cosmetic damage to the front of Five Below.

Crews also cleaned up a slight fluid leak on the sidewalk.

CFD is investigating how a fire started at an old textile mill Thursday morning.

It happened just after 9:30 am at the Standard Coosa-Thatcher building on S Watkins Street.

A nearby resident called it in after seeing smoke.

Multiple crews responded to the scene and inside, they found a stack of pallets and old doors on fire on the second floor and they quickly extinguished the flames.

No one was injured. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Firefighters carefully searched the entire building.

No one was found inside.

Smoke will be seen coming from the structure for some time today as a result of the fire, officials stressed to those who live in the area.

The Chattanooga Fire Department has new methods in place to increase efficiency and effectiveness.

A recently implemented program is already making an impact, loosening the strain on emergency services and getting citizens the help they need, while keeping them from routinely calling 911.

It’s called CFD Connect and it was established in partnership with the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga’s (UTC) Social Work Program.

The program places two social work master’s level interns with firefighters.

The goal is to address high users of non-emergency calls (like medical assists and lift assist calls). We make sure there are services in place for those particular individuals in order to decrease their dependence on the 911 system.
