On May 24th just before noon, members of Lawrence County Fire Rescue responded to a report of a residential structure fire at 14 Grinnell Drive in the Gandy Community. First arriving units from Gandy Fire Department arrived to find a mobile home fully involved with fire. Fire crews initiated a defensive attack on the fire due to the extent of fire progress, and the poor water supply in the area.

A tanker shuttle was set up to supply water for suppression efforts. One firefighter sustained a broken foot during extinguishment efforts. The firefighter was treated and released at a local facility, but is expected to be out of work during recovery.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Initial findings point to an incendiary fire. If you have any information about the cause of the fire, please contact us via private message on the Lawrence County Fire Rescue Facebook Page or call the Tennessee Arson Hotline @ 1-800-762-3017.
