CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - For the second time this year, a fire has damaged hundreds of headstones at the Chattanooga National Cemetery.
Fire officials told WRCB-TV that they were called to a report of a grass fire Sunday morning and arrive to find heavy smoke.
Windy conditions fueled-the 1-acre blaze, which was quickly put out.
Despite firefighters' efforts, about 500 headstones at the cemetery were damaged.
A 5-acre grass fire in January damaged about 1,800 headstones at the cemetery.
Both blazes are under investigation by multiple agencies. No cause for either fire has been determined.
