[ARCHIVED] MFRD Investigating More Storm Damage

Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department's District 1 and City Engineer Sam Huddleston are investigating more storm damage Wednesday morning.

Crews discovered destruction at the Salvation Army building located at 125 Front Street around 6:15. Both the roof and the front glass of the building were damaged.

They are currently investigating debris on the public square.

According to Ladder 1 Captain Jamie Bigelow it is unclear at this time where the debris originated. "We probably will learn more around 8:00 am when people start the work day," said Captain Bigelow. "Right now we see no external damage."


According to Shift Commander Tim Swann it was not water pressure from the roof that caused the glass to blow out of the FMO building. "It appears that at some point the wind dislodged the glass and it fell out of the tracks sometime this morning."

Swann also said that electricity has been cut to half of the building so the business can remain open if necessary.
