TFD Responds to Bragg Drive
House Fire Cause Still Under Investigation
March 29, 2013
At 10:24 a.m., TFD responded to a house fire located at 209 Bragg Drive. Firefighters
encountered heavy fire in the rear of a single-story wood frame house. Fire crews
extinguished the fire in ten minutes and did not find anyone inside the home. It was later
determined that the house was vacant and did not have power service. No injuries were
reported at the scene and damages were estimated at $40,000. The fire started outside the
house in the backyard and spread to the inside of the house. Someone driving through the
neighborhood called 9-1-1 after noticing flames and smoke in the rear of the house. The
State Fire Marshal’s office and Department of Agriculture Investigators are investigating
the cause of the fire. The Tallahassee Police Department and City of Tallahassee Utilities
also assisted at the scene.
