Fire destroys Timeshare Real Estate Unit At Fairfield Glade

Fire officials still do not know the exact cause of the fire that swept through one unit of a timeshare real estate complex in Fairfield Glade Monday morning but quick response by three area fire departments kept the blaze from spreading to adjacent timeshare units.

It was mid-morning when Fairfield Glade Security was contacted about smoke coming from one of the units at Kensington Woods off Fairfield Boulevard and a security officer was dispatched to the scene and confirmed that a working fire was under way.

Fairfield Glade Fire Department responded and set up a water supply to fight the fire and started measures to prevent the fire from spreading to the adjacenttimeshare real estate unit. When firefighters arrived, fire had already broken through the exterior walls and backside roof.

A call for mutual aid was sent out to the Cumberland County Fire Department and moments later Crossville City Fire Department with both departments sending multiple units and manpower.

Fire departments remained on the scene for several hours. While cause of the fire remains under investigation, it is believed the fire started in a bedroom of the timeshare unit that had been occupied the night before by three people.

The occupants had already checked out and were gone by the time the fire was discovered, Fairfield Glade interim Fire Chief Bob Citkovic told the Glade Sun.
