"this is what we train for.

We have a new driver.

We were literally just doing this scenario wednesday and friday.

We have had a dry spell.

We haven't had any rain in a while.

So, the leaves are dry.

So, we tried to keep it as close to the initial point of fire as we could."

No injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Voting rights advocate stacey abrams talked about the restrictions to voting access being proposed by georgia and many other states on cnn's "state of the union" sunday.

Abrams says that republicans are trying to eliminate access to voting.

We know that voter fraud did not happen.

But we know that voter participation did increase.

And we should all be small-d democratic in the sense that we should want as many people as possible who are eligible to have a voice in the direction of our nation.

If we are willing to invest our dollars, we should be allowed to have a voice in our system.

That was the fundamental premise of this nation."

It's been one year since the pandemic hit and most businesses had to close their doors.

News 12's joeli poole spoke with local business owners who reflect on this challenging year.

One year ago the coronavirus pandemic hit the united states and forced all businesses to close their doors to the public.

Since then, it's been a bumpy road for businesses as they respond to guideline changes, mask mandates, and limited store capacities.

Chattanooga businesses say they remember the moment they were first told they had to close.

Rebecca angel "it was like whattt.

I don't think we ever could have imagined it would happen like that.

It's not something we ever would have considered to happen.

It was crazy."

Cindy jayne "we had to cancel all the easter dresses.

Cancel all the white graduation dresses that come in in may.

We had to start from scratch and start thinking our whole world is about to change here."

Most businesses say they have had to depend more on online sales, delivery services and rearranging how they do business.

Jayne " i haven't had the people connection that i normally have when i am in the store.

That's the joyous part of it.

It really makes you put your nose to the grindstone and dig deep into what's important to you.

What do you want to represent.

I have always thought you have to be unique or you wont make it."

Though this year has been challenging, local businesses say they are finally seeing an uptick in sales and are hopeful for the future.

Angel "business is actually really good right now.

With the weather warming up so many people are walking at coolidge and downtown.

We are really excited for this summer too."

Jayne "stay hopeful and stay positive.

Please shop local.

Please stay with us.

Help us through this.

We can do it but we can't do it without you."

In chattanooga, joeli poole, news 12 now covid-19 has also pushed many parents into pursing homeschooling as an option.

Homeschool inspire founder was founded by a chattanooga mom of nine homeschooled children.

Joyce mcpherson helps parents that are new to homeschooling their children.

She created this group last year in order to relieve stress from families by offering a mentor program.

"we realized that there was a need for support for parents.

We also wanted to help parents create their own approach and so we tried to match people with experienced homeschoolers who use the same approach to home school and there are many approaches."

If you would like to be a mentee or a mentor send them an email at inspire 2 educate us at gmail dot com well---we hope you changed your clocks last night.

But most importantly---the chattanooga fire department hopes that you are keeping up with the batteries in your smoke detectors.

With the batteries in your smoke detectors.

The fire department says that smoke alarms that are properly installed and maintained play a vital role in reducing fire deaths and injuries.

They suggest that you test your smoke alarms regularly as well as make a fire escape plan for your home.

"you push this button and you do not hear a response, more than likely, that means that the device is either malfunctioning or it has a dead battery which is an easy replacement.

These things usually operate off of a 9 volt battery.

You should replace those batteries about every 6 months."

If your smoke alarm malfunctions--chattanooga fire will come out and replace your batteries or the detector.

Cbs news correspondent tom hanson reports from new york.

''hatch is unlocked.'' with the hatch open, american astronauts victor glover and mike hopkins took a few giant steps to venture outside the international space station.

Glover and hopkins took the nearly-seven hour spacewalk to conduct several intricate maintenance procedures on the space station.

From earth below, nasa mission control offered safety guidance... ''please avoid contact with any of the rotating structure.'' and directions... ''and let me know if you need guidance to get to the work site.'' their first task saturday was to vent ammonia from two jumper cables used to feed coolant into the station's external control system.

Astronaut: ''ok, we have a few ammonia crystals that are coming out from the female.'' the amount of ammonia released into space came as a surprise.

''oh yeah, look at that go the astronauts had to take extra safety precautions after possibly getting some of the toxic chemical on themselves.

''so at the end of all these ops, we'll do an inspection of both of you.'' their suits were checked for ammonia to avoid getting any inside the space station and contaminating the cabin atmosphere.

''ike, if you could use your helmet lights to look over hopper's suit to see if you see any signs of ammonia on him.'' ''there does not appear to be any ammonia residue on any of the crew members.'' the crew ended the day with their mission accomplished, as glover and hopkins arrived safely back inside the space station.

Glover and hopkins launched to the space station last november on spacex.

This was their second spacewalk together..

Rick barnes: "oregon state finished as strong as any team in the country in their conference.

What was it, oregon, ucla and colorado, in that order.

That tells you how well they're playing.

A terrific team that's been coached well, and they've gotten better and you said it, they're playing their best basketball."

He is now back with the team, and barnes says he will travel to indy tomorrow.

However, his status is still up in the air.

He will be evaluated daily.
