Knoxville Fire Department 7914 Gleason Drive



Shortly after 9:00 p.m. 911 calls started to pour in, all reporting condo units on fire at 7914 Gleason Drive. When firefighters arrived to the Meadow Condos, they reported a six unit condo strip with three of the six units directly involved with fire. First arriving engine companies deployed attack lines and began fighting the flames while additional manpower began searching the units for residents who might still be inside. One remaining resident, not knowing of the danger, was strongly encouraged then politely assisted to safety. The fire damage was contained to units 1016, 1015, & 1014, the other three units were not damaged by fire. At one point the Incident Commander noticed an inevitable roof collapse about to occur, and ordered interior crews out before the overhead trusses failed. Within forty-five minutes the flames were under control and crews began searching for hot spots. Fire Investigators are on the scene to determine the cause of the fire, and the American Red Cross is assisting with the needs of those affected. No injuries are reported.
