10-3-17 Update on Recent Fire Victims

The woman pulled from her home at 1218 Judys Lane on September 17th is still being treated at the Wellstar Cobb Hospital in Austell, GA. Her injuries are very serious. No additional information was made available at this time. Charles Vaughn, 72, died in this fire on Judys Lane.

The 44-year-old woman carried from her burning home at 111 Centro Street on September 20th was transported to the burn center at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville. She was critically injured as well, but she responded quickly to her treatment and she returned to Chattanooga late last week. Her recovery here will continue, but she no longer needs medical care in the hospital.

The cause of both fires appears to be accidental, though what exactly sparked the two fires remains undetermined.


* We cannot offer the names of the two victims at this point, but we wanted to provide an update with the information we had. Another update may be forthcoming.
