Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department’s Districts 4, 7, and 9, Engine 1 and Rescue 8, responded to a structure fire at Associated Masonry Products (AMP) located at 1311 West College Street just before 10:00 Thursday morning.
When crews arrived on scene, light to moderate smoke was exiting the right side of the metal structure. Employees had already been evacuated and Rutherford County Emergency Medical Services was on standby. Fortunately, no one was hurt or injured during the incident.
According to Shift Commander Tim Swann, the fire got up into the attic and burned insulation off the roof line. “Crews did an excellent job getting the fire knocked down,” Swann said.
Areas of the outside of the building were charred, but only AMP’s showroom will be closed until further notice. If customers need to reach AMP, they can contact the Nashville office at 615-331-1000 for assistance.
The Fire Marshal’s Office was called to the scene to investigate. According to Assistant Fire Marshal Tracy Summar, the fire appears to be electrical in nature; however, it is still under investigation.
More information will be released as it becomes available.
