[ARCHIVED] MFRD Responds to Early Morning Fire at Bridget Drive and Chanda Lane

1707 Bridget

Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department's Ladders 6 and 7, Rescues 7 and 8, and Engine 4 responded to a fire at Bridget Drive and Chanda Lane (1707 Bridget Drive) just after 1:00 Wednesday morning.

When crews arrived on scene, they found a fully involved two story residence.

Crews began exterior fire tactics after discovering that there were no victims inside.

According to Shift Commander Daryl Alexander, crews used the aerial on Ladder 6 to knock down the bulk of the fire, but three handlines were also in action. "We arrived to heavy flames exiting the structure," said Alexander, "but crews were able to get the fire under control quickly."

Once it was safe, firefighters entered the structure to begin interior operations and extinguish any hotspots.

No injuries were associated with this incident.

The home is believed to be abandoned and MFRD's Fire Marshal's Office has been called to the scene to investigate.

There are no further details to release at this time.
