Shed fire

Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department’s District 1 responded to a shed on fire located at 723 Poplar Avenue just after 1:00 Tuesday afternoon.

When crews arrived on scene, they discovered flames and smoke coming from a metal out building. Crews pulled a pre-connect and it took around 500 gallons of water to put the fire out.

According to Captain/Shift Inspector Nora Smith the shed was used for storage. “Crews did an excellent job in responding and getting the fire out quickly,” Smith said.

The exact cause of the fire is unknown; however, it appears accidental in nature.
