JEFFERSON COUNTY, Tenn. (WATE) — Officials from different counties came together to extinguish a house fire near Cherokee Lake on Lake Forest Circle in Talbott, according to the Lakeway Central Fire Department. There were no injuries reported.

Jefferson City Fire Department responded to the scene Tuesday, July 12 of a home located at 2978 Lake Forrest Circle. There were reports that the fire started in the attic of the two-level home and was coming from both sides of the roof.

The roof collapsed from the fire before other officials could go inside, according to Lake Central Fire.

Defensive operations were on the scene but were limited to water supply due to the hydrants and boat ramps being too far from their range.

The departments worked to refill their Tankers from the boat ramps where the drafting operation was set up. Water was also drafted from the back of the house using a small portable pump.

“We kept the fire contained to the structure of origin, protecting nearby homes,” according Lake Central Fire.

The fire departments were able to extinguish the fire. There were also some firefighters treated at the scene.

“We would like to thank all agencies involved for their hard work and dedication to serving our citizens. It is very difficult during normal business hours when most volunteers are working to get enough help so we could not accomplish what we do without the help of our surrounding agencies,” Lake Central Fire said.
