[ARCHIVED] MFRD Responds to House Fire at 1320 Diana Street

Diana Street Fire

Murfreesboro Fire Rescue Department’s Districts 1, 3, and 8 and Rescue 9 responded to a house fire at 1320 Diana Street just before 10:00 Friday morning.

Crews arrived to find heavy fire on the back deck and fire and smoke venting through the roof. The attic was completely involved according to the first arriving crew members.

According to Engine 3 Captain Tony Lehew, the fire had been burning for a while before it was called in. Firefighters extinguished the fire quickly and searched the house for hotspots.

Fortunately, the owner was not home at the time. At least five outside dogs were found unharmed.

Battalion Chief Daryl Alexander said the home received heavy fire, smoke, water, and heat damage and will likely be a total loss. The owner did not require assistance from the Red Cross, and the animals will be taken care of by a family member.

The Community Risk Reduction Division is on scene investigating. At this time, the cause is unknown, but it appears that the fire started on the back deck.

More information will be released as it becomes available.
