[ARCHIVED] MFRD Battles Two-Story House Fire at 4240 Birch Drive

Birch Ave Fire 6.26.15

Despite best efforts, a two-story home located at 4240 Birch Drive is likely a total loss according to Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department officials.

MFRD's Engines 1 and 5, Ladder 9, and Rescue 9 responded to the home just after 1:00 Friday morning.

When crews arrived, the two-story already had flames shooting through the roof and was fully involved.

"We set up the aerial on Ladder 9 and used the deck gun to get the fire knocked down," said Shift Commander Dale Maynard. "We were able to get it out pretty quickly."

Crews are still on scene extinguishing hot spots at this time.

According to Maynard, the house next door received some heat damage to its aluminum siding.

No one was injured during the incident, but the residents will be displaced. Murfreesboro Electric is in route to pull the meter. Assistance from the American Red Cross will be offered, though it is unclear at this time if it will be needed.

The Fire Marshals' Office was called to conduct a routine investigation. Assistant Fire Marshal Tracy Summar is on scene at this time, but has yet to be able to enter the home.

More information will be released as it becomes available.
