Early Morning House Fire Displaces Three Residents


Murfreesboro Fire Rescue’s District 9, Engine 10, and Rescue 2 responded to a house fire at 1319 Dodd Trail just before 4:00 Saturday morning.

All residents were out of the home and crews began a defensive attack on the flames that were shooting from the back of the house and roof.

According to Battalion Chief Daryl Alexander, crews were able to get a quick stop on the fire, but as quickly as the fire spread through the attic, the home will still likely be a total loss.

The American Red Cross arrived on scene to offer assistance to the residents, who were all three transported by Rutherford County Emergency Medical Services to Saint Thomas Rutherford with possible smoke inhalation.

Assistant Fire Marshal Michael Bartlett was called to the scene to conduct a routine investigation.

More information will be released as it becomes available.
