An update on an earlier story, from the Cleveland Daily Banner…
The Saturday morning fire that destroyed a Cleveland attorney’s planned office and led to damage to several adjacent businesses in Athens has been ruled accidental.
According to reports from the Tennessee State Fire Marshal’s Office, the exact cause of the fire that gutted the office of Logan and Associates, which was to open in just a few weeks, has not been determined.
Logan said Saturday, at the site of that morning’s fire, that there had been work done within the historic building, but the Fire Marshal’s Office did not state a cause of the 5:48 a.m. fire.
No one sustained injuries in the fire, according to officials there.

From WRCB Channel 3…
Over the weekend firefighters had to pull a Cleveland man out of his car when it became stuck in a flash flood. The swift water rescue happened under the bridge near the intersection of Inman and Edwards Streets downtown.
The July 1st rescue was only his third of this kind in Jagger’s nine years with the department. He says the driver, who was the only person in the car, might have drowned if only another few minutes had passed.
At one point the water was chest high on the firefighters. They were able to break a window and pull the man to safety.
The man who was rescued doesn’t want to be identified. He told us on Facebook he was stuck behind several cars at a red light and the water wasn’t deep. Then it rose very quickly and his car battery died. Thankfully, he was able to call 911 from his cell phone.
Firefighters responded immediately and were only a few blocks away. The rescue was a team effort.
The man who was rescued says he’s extremely grateful to the firefighters for saving his life. He was shaken up a bit but not injured.
