Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department’s Engines 1, 3, and 4, Ladder 1, and Rescues 2 and 8 responded to a duplex fire at 1014 Todd Court just before 7:00 Thursday night.
When crews arrived on scene, they discovered fire at the back of the residence. According to Captain/Shift Training Officer Tracy Summar, crews were able to get a quick knockdown on the fire and keep it from damaging the other unit.
Both residents from the affected unit made it out safely. A total of three dogs and one cat also survived the fire.
Though the cause of the fire is unknown at this time, it appears to have started on the back patio.
The Fire Marshal’s Office has been called to conduct a routine investigation
