Police News: 2 victims of fire still critical

2 victims of fire still critical

A woman and small boy who were injured in a house fire that killed a baby Saturday morning still are under intense treatment, hospital officials say.

Brandy Curry was baby-sitting 21/2-year-old Antonio Jackson and 14-month-old Destiny Jackson when the fire broke out at 70 Maude St.

Sunday night, Curry was listed in critical condition at Joseph M. Still Burn Center in Augusta, Ga.

Antonio was listed in critical but stable condition at T.C. Thompson Children's Hospital in Chattanooga.

Destiny Jackson died from injuries suffered in the fire.

Investigators still are trying to determine the cause of the blaze.

Dallas Bay house damaged by fire

A family of five sought shelter Sunday night after a fire in their basement, according to Hamilton County Emergency Services.

In a news release, spokeswoman Amy Maxwell said homeowner Michael Wilson saw smoke coming through the floor vents of his home at 1500 N. Winer Drive about 7:15 p.m.

Dallas Bay volunteer firefighters responded and extinguished a fire in the basement.

The Wilson family got out of the house, and no injuries were reported, but the basement and subfloor were damaged. The American Red Cross is assisting the family, and the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office will investigate the fire.
