Duplex fire

Murfreesboro Fire Rescue Department’s Engine 4 and Ladder 6 and District 7 responded to a duplex fire at 812 Corner Court around 3:15 Saturday morning.

Crews arrived on scene to find flames coming out of the front door and windows. The occupants of the unit where the fire originated were already outside. One of the occupants mentioned that she tried knocking on the other unit’s door with no response.

Firefighters searched the unit and found that the other occupants had already exited the house.

The fire was extinguished and no injuries were associated with the incident.

A total of five adults and three children were displaced and will be assisted by the American Red Cross.

The fire appears to have started in the kitchen, but the cause is unknown at this time. The Fire Marshal’s Office will be conducting a routine investigation. More information will be released as it becomes available.
