Two homes take plunge into the Tennessee River over the weekend

HARDIN COUNTY, Tenn. — Two homes in Hardin County, Tenn. took a plunge into the Tennessee River Saturday evening.

Hardin Co. firefighters were called just after 5 p.m. to the 4800 block of Glendale Rd. for fears of a landslide along the Tennessee River.

Two houses were in danger of a collapse, but only one of the homes was being lived in. The homeowners were evacuated.

Just an hour later, the vacant house took a plunge down the steep bank. Sunday afternoon, the second home collapsed into the river.

TDOT closed the area of Glendale Rd. between Coffee Landing Rd. and Small Rd. due to the collapse, which is about 20 feet from Glendale Rd.
