Around 11AM on Friday, Kingsport Firefighters (C-Shift) were notified of a possible structure fire on the 1600 block of C Street. C-3, Engine 1, Engine 2, Engine 3, Ladder 1, and Fire-Rescue 12 responded to the scene. Upon arrival, fire units had smoke and fire visible from the attic area of the residence on the D side. Firefighters entered the structure to find light smoke conditions in the residence, but were able to quickly locate the fire in the attic area. The crew made access to the attic, and began a quick extinguishment of the fire. A ventilation crew made their way to the roof, where they cut a ventilation hole to help expel the smoke. Crews remained on-scene while they finished extinguishing the fire and cleaned up.


Just before noon on Thursday, Kingsport Firefighters (B-Shift) were alerted of a possible structure fire near the intersection of Lynn Garden Drive and Mullins Street. As units responded, smoke was visible from a distance and the 911 calls continued to come in. C-3 arrived on-scene a two story wood-framed residence with heavy smoke showing and assumed Mullins Street Command.
