tn.gov/Peg Broadcasting News Wednesday January 11, 2017

The State Fire Marshals Office (SFMO) is reminding Tennesseans that January leads all other months in residential fires, heating fires and fatal fires.
Here in Cumberland County, firefighters responded to two house fires early Sunday morning. Crews were unable to save a two story home on Peter Pan Drive. Three people living there managed to escape the blaze unharmed. Firefighters were also called out to a structure fire on Lige Road around 6:30 a.m. Sunday. The home, which was not occupied, was fully engulfed when crews arrived on the scene, and is a total loss.

Since 2010, Tennessee has averaged 2.75 fatal fires (22 in 8 years) and 3.375 fire deaths (27 in 8 years) during the second week of January according to SFMO data. This is the highest number of both fires and victims for any week of the year and is nearly double the rate of the average week.
