Firefighters quickly stopped a kitchen fire from spreading at an apartment complex in East Brainerd Tuesday night.

Our crews were called to Timber Knoll Dr around 7 PM at the Timber Ridge Cooperative Homes.

A kitchen fire in one of the units spread to an adjacent wall. Quint 8 made an interior attack and got the fire under control.

Quint 8, Quint 21, Squad 13, Quint 13, Quint 7, Battalion 2 and Battalion 1 were on scene.

Responding fire officials say the cause was electrical.

There were no injuries.

CFD is investigating a house fire in the 700 block of Curve Street in North Chattanooga that sent a baby to the hospital.

We got the call around 12:10 pm Tuesday.

When crews arrived, heavy smoke was coming from the unit on the right side of the duplex.

Firefighters started to attack the flames, which had moved to the attic.

The residents (mother, father and two children) got out, but an infant suffered minor burns and was taken to the hospital.

It took about 70 minutes to fully extinguish the blaze.

CFD also worked to protect the unit on the other side of the duplex.

Multiple companies were on scene. The impacted unit suffered extensive damage.

Investigators say it appears the fire started in one of the bedrooms and they believe it was accidental. It is still under investigation.

Thanks to a generous donation from Kelly Subaru, the Chattanooga Fire Department is expanding its supply of pet oxygen masks.

Our pets are like family members so it's important for our crews to have this life-saving equipment on the scene of fires.

Every fire truck will be equipped with several masks.

This initiative is in conjunction with Subaru's National Campaign, "Subaru Loves Pets" for the month of October.

These specially-designed animal masks can be used both on conscious pets that have suffered from smoke inhalation and pets that need to be resuscitated after losing consciousness from exposure to the dangerous toxic fumes.

Fire Chief Phil Hyman expressed the department's gratitude and added: "It’s important for us to be able to do everything we can to make sure our pets are safe. We think it’s important to treat them like family members."

Members of the community notified 911 tonight and helped get fire crews to a burning home on Bailey Avenue.

It happened just before 5 PM Monday in the 2400 block.

A passerby walking her dog called it in and there were several other reports received from vigilant citizens.

Chattanooga police officers were first on the scene and checked to see if anyone was inside, but no one was home.

When firefighters arrived, flames were showing through the windows.

They went in through the front door and put the fire out.

There were no injuries.

Two people were displaced and the Red Cross was contacted to assist the impacted residents.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

A great group of firefighters and volunteers came out for a free smoke alarm distribution in the East Lake neighborhood! Thanks to everyone and the Red Cross!

We knocked on approximately 224 doors, installed dozens of smoke detectors and replaced batteries in others. 

As we all get ready to “fall back” this weekend when Daylight Saving Time ends, the Chattanooga Fire Department is urging residents to change the batteries in their smoke alarms.

And it’s important to make sure your smoke alarms are all working properly.
