Firefighters say two apartment units caught fire in Ringgold, as officials warned of flooding and debris on roadways in Catoosa County Tuesday night.

According to Catoosa County Fire Chief Randy Champ, the two units at Rosewood Apartments were moderately damaged, but no one was injured.

Power outages were also reported in Ringgold and other parts of North Georgia during Tuesday night's storms.

According to GDOT, flooding was reported on I-75 near Battlefield Parkway Tuesday evening, affecting traffic in both directions. That alert has since ended, but drivers can still expect debris on area roadways.

Remember, if you see a flooded roadway, turn around - don't drown!
