A-1 Home Builders Loses an Excavator to Fire on 6/14/2022

We've heard that there was some type of hydraulic problem. A friend of ours, who is a contractor, said that he has seen cinders from fires get sucked into the air filters of excavators, and catch them on fire. It wouldn't surprise me if that's what happened here, but we wouldn't have any idea what caused it here. It seems to be a common occurance when excavators are used around fires. See here. And And here.

A New Trench Burner / Air Curtain Has Been Installed - 6/20/2022.

There is still a lot of smoke after hours. Nobody was watching the remaining fire, but I think that I passed one of their employees headed in on my way out.

Fairview, Tennessee has been designated a "Tree City" because of protective Zoning Ordinance like the one above. Yet, Fairview allowed A-1 Home Builders, Inc. to do this...

The way it was on January 10, 2022, and the way it was before...

What happened, on multiple occasions, after A-1 Home Builders, Inc. ran almost all of that wood through a chipper and pushed the mulch into that hole?

The City only sent out page one of the following document on 2/17/2022. Pages 2, 3, and 4, have been requested and will assist us, just as those pages in the Phase 2 permit did.
Grading, Site Utilization, and Reclamation Permit Aden Woods Phase 3

This link below goes to the full four page version of the Grading Permit for Phase 3.
There is an important timeline here. One can only conclude that A-1 Home Builders must have been removing trees from Phase 3 without a permit to do so. Additionally, Page 3 of the document indicates that no mature trees will be removed, even as a new orange fence has been installed (per tree regulations) that would typically indicate which trees are to be saved, and which additional trees are to be removed, with many mature trees being on the "to be removed" side of the fence.
  1. Be aware that a TDEC complaint was filed by a homeowner on Chessington Drive, on 2/5/2022, because A-1 Home Builders was already pushing large mature trees down in the creek within phase 3.
  2. This document was requested via an Open Records request on 2/15/2022.
  3. The date of the document above and below is 2/16/2022.
  4. The one page incomplete document from the link above was sent out by the City on 2/17/2022.
  5. The document below was sent out by the City on 2/28/2022 after it was requested again.
