Residential Structure Fire

Bluff Pointe

The Dandridge Fire Department responded to a working residentail structure fire August 31, 2015 at 0632 hours. Before crews could arrive the structure would be overtaken by the fire with extension to a storage shed which contained four 30 pound propane cylinders. The shed was quickly extinguished and the attention was placed on the single wide trailer. Engine 3 (New Market VFD), Engine 774, Engine 772, Tanker 780 and Support/Rehab 781 would be on scene for an estimated three hours making sure the fire was out. Lakeway Central VFD would be called up to cover the DFD district.

The DFD was dispatched for a semi tractor trailer on fire. Prior to Engine 772 arriving dispatched advised that both the tractor and trailer were involved. No hazardous materials were being carried. The load would include limes (produce). A quick knockdown by Engine 772 contained the fire to the tractor. The load did not suffer any damage.  A big thank you goes out to the Tennessee Highway Patrol and the Jefferson County Sheriff Department for keeping traffic under control.
