COVID-19 vaccines have made their way to our firefighters! Mayor Andy Berke joined CPD Chief David Roddy and CFD Chief Phil Hyman as first responders starting getting their shots on Wednesday.

“It is critical for Chattanooga’s first responders to have immunity from the coronavirus and other diseases so that we are able respond appropriately to all routine emergencies and keep our residents safe,” Chief Hyman said.

Right now, the vaccine is being administered to first responders who have volunteered to receive it. For more information, go to cha.city/vaccine.

A Chattanooga man and his dog are safe after escaping their burning home.

At 4:20 PM Saturday, members of the Chattanooga Fire Department responded to a residential fire in the 3100 block of New York Avenue and found flames coming through the roof and the roof vent.

The initial attack was exterior m, but when crews spoke to the resident, who was outside, he indicated that his pet was still inside.

When it was safe, firefighters went to make an interior attack and the resident’s dog immediately ran out the front door uninjured.

Crews had a quick knockdown on the fire and placed tarps over the resident’s belongings to protect them from further fire, water and smoke damage.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. There were no injuries.

Engine 4, Quint 10, Quint 6, Ladder 7, Squad 13, Squad 7, Battalion 2, Battalion 3 (Red), HCEMS, CPD and EPB responded.

New York Ave house fire

It was a busy night for the Chattanooga Fire Department. After working a commercial fire on Highway 58, crews were called to a residential fire not far off of Highway 58 a short time later.

Around 7 PM, several companies were dispatched to a home in the 4700 block of Beverly Kay Drive.

Several handicapped residents and their caregivers noticed smoke in the house and called 911. The caregivers started evacuating the residents.

When firefighters arrived on the scene, nothing was visible, but they checked everything and found smoke in the kitchen coming from under the sink.

A fire in the back wall of the home was discovered so some of the crews worked to put the fire out as others helped get the residents out of the structure.

Due to the cold weather, they waited in a van and an ambulance while CFD extinguished the fire, which was determined to be electrical.

The displaced residents will be staying in a hotel for the time being. There were no injuries.

Battalion 2, Quint 6, Ladder 7, Squad 7, Engine 15, Engine 4 (Green), HCEMS and EPB responded.

Chattanooga firefighters had a very quick stop on a commercial fire Friday afternoon on Highway 58.

It happened at 4:08 PM at Carter Shooting Supply (6208 Highway 58). There were reports that the building was filling up with black smoke.

Everyone evacuated the structure safely and CFD crews found rubber used for the gun range on fire. It was contained to a back corner and extinguished.

There were no injuries. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Responding units included: Quint 8, Squad 7, Ladder 7, Quint 6, Squad 19, Ladder 19, Engine 4, Engine 15 (Green), CFD Special Operations, HCEMS and CPD.

Thanks to Highway 58 and Dallas Bay for providing fire coverage at Station 7 while CFD was on the scene.

Here’s what the business posted: “We would like to thank everyone for your calls and texts to make sure we are ok. Just to let everyone know, the store was never on fire. The rubber in the backstop on the pistol side caught fire and was put out quickly by Chattanooga Fire Dept. It is completely enclosed concrete building so the fire was contained only to the rubber in the bullet trap. There is smoke and water but not a lot of major damage. The rifle side is fine, just smoke that will have to be cleaned up. The range will be closed for the next week or so until it can be cleaned up. Thanks to everyone for calling and texting, to make sure we are ok! We are all good and no one was injured.”
