CFD crews worked an accident with entrapment Monday morning on Brainerd Road.

The call came in at 5:53 AM. Squad 13 arrived on the scene with a vehicle inside the building, which was Brainerd Pharmacy. They requested additional companies for manpower and began extrication efforts.

The patient was removed from the vehicle after crews were able to access the car from inside the building. She was transported to the hospital. The extent of her injuries are unknown.

Damage to the building was extensive, but it was deemed to be structurally stable.

Squad 13, Squad 1, Engine 15, Battalion 2 and CFD Special Operations responded.

A fatal fire is under investigation in East Chattanooga.

The call came in as a residential fire at 2:50 AM Sunday in the 2700 block of Taylor Street.

Neighbors reported that a camper was on fire behind a home and responding firefighters found a large bus fully engulfed in flames.

Engine 4 was first on scene. Bystanders notified the crew that a possible victim was inside and a search was performed simultaneously with the fire attack. The victim, who was living on the bus, was removed prior to the fire being extinguished.

CFD investigators were called to the scene. Engine 4, Quint 6, Quint 10, Squad 1, Squad 13, Engine 15, Battalion 1, Battalion 3, CPD and HCEMS also responded.

CFD expresses condolences to the victim’s family. Investigators are working to determine what caused the deadly blaze. Positive identification of the victim is pending so their name is not being released at this time.

Engine 5, Ladder 5, Engine 15, Squad 13, Engine 9 and Battalion 1 responded just after 11 PM and upon arrival, they found a small fire in the front room of the vacant home.

A water extinguisher was used to extinguish the fire. It is under investigation at this time.

CFD investigators’ hard work has resulted in an arson arrest in connection with a residential fire that put several lives in danger.

Kelvin Moore, 43, turned himself in at the Hamilton County Jail today on Friday (9/18) and was charged with aggravated arson in the case.

Firefighters responded to Moore's home on Thursday morning (9/17) at 11:30 AM in the 1400 block of E 17th Street.

Crews saw black smoke coming from his side of the duplex and found a small fire in the living room.

With a quick attack, the fire was out in five minutes and contained to one room. Thankfully, there were no injuries.

It is unclear why Moore allegedly set his residence on fire. He is charged with aggravated arson because the residents on the other side of the duplex were home at the time of the incident. They spotted the fire and called it in, allowing CFD to respond quickly to extinguish it.

Squad 13, Ladder 5, Squad 1, Quint 1, Ladder 1, Engine 5, Engine 9, Battalion 1, Battalion 2, CPD, EPB and HCEMS were on the scene. Investigators quickly determined they were dealing with an intentionally set fire and developed Moore as the suspect. Warrants were issued and they began searching for him, leading him to surrender on Friday.
