We have a couple of fires to report to you that occurred this week.
The Manchester Fire Department was called to a utility trailer fire in the Indian Springs subdivision just off Hills Chapel Road on Wednesday. Manchester Fire & Rescue Chief George DeShields says when firemen arrived at the scene they found a pressure washer on the trailer on fire. The utility trailer included two fuel containers (gas/diesel). The cause of the blaze is unknown at this time.

Flames were leaping out the roof of a building on East Lincoln Tuesday night when firefighters arrived.
According to Tullahoma Fire Chief Richard Shasteen, lightning struck the roof of Dr. Kelly Biles office during a storm that passed through the area. “Someone driving by saw the fire and called 911,” the fire chief stated. “They said that flames were coming out the roof and when we arrived we found flames coming out.”
Shasteen noted that fire crews were able to bring the fire under control and extinguished it. There was minimum damage to the building.
