Fire Damages Motel In Baileyton

Originally published: 2010-01-06 09:40:16

Several rooms at the 36 Motel on Van Hill Road in Baileyton were damaged by fire on Wednesday morning.

Baileyton Police Chief Dale Dodds said that when he reached the motel at 440 Van Hill Road shortly after 9 a.m., smoke and flames were coming from a window in one of the rooms.

The prefabricated motel is divided into six separate sections and the fire affected rooms in two of the six sections.

The blaze may have begun near a heater in a vacant room and then spread to at least four other rooms before volunteer firefighters from the Baileyton-based United Volunteer Fire Department and the Mosheim VFD were able to bring it under control, Dodds said.

Michele DeLotto, a spokesman for the United VFD, said she understood that four rooms were heavily damaged by the fire and that two others sustained smoke damage.

None of the fire-damaged rooms had been occupied at the time the fire broke out, DeLotto said.
The exact cause of the fire had not been determined.

Ten firefighters from the United VFD were joined by 10 firefighters from the Mosheim VFD, two firefighters from the Newmansville VFD and one firefighter from the Caney Branch VFD.

In addition, she said, firefighters from the Town of Mosheim VFD brought their department's "cascade unit" to the scene to refill the compressed air tanks of firefighters' self-contained breathing apparatus.

Also responding to the fire, in addition to Baileyton Police Chief Dale Dodds and the firefighters, were units of the Greene County Sheriff's Department, Greene County-Greeneville Emergency Medical Services, Greeneville Light & Power and the Greene County Chapter of the American Red Cross.

Firefighters remained on the scene at 11:30 a.m.
