Murfreesboro Fire

Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department’s Ladders 1 and 8, Engine 1, and Rescues 7 and 8 responded to an apartment fire at 815 Fairview Avenue (Fairview Apartments) just after 9:30 Friday night.

When crews arrived on scene, flames were shooting through the roof of Apartment 6, which was located on the end of the building.

According to Shift Commander Dale Maynard, crews were able to get the fire out quickly. “At this time we think it’s possible that the fire started in the attic, but we’ve asked the Fire Marshal to come out to investigate,” said Maynard.

No one was inside the apartment when crews arrived on scene. Assistance from the Red Cross was not needed.

No injuries were associated with the incident.

The Fire Marshal’s Office is en route to the scene to conduct a routine investigation. More information will be released as it becomes available.

According to Fire Marshal Carl Peas, the Friday night fire at 815 Fairview Avenue appears accidental. “The fire seemed to have started in the attic section of Apartment 6,” said Peas. Peas also believes that a security light above Unit 6 could have been the cause.
