Nashville firefighter injured in Donelson blaze

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Two separate fires ripped through two Middle Tennessee homes overnight.

One of the blazes in Donelson injured a Nashville firefighter and is being investigated as suspicious.

It started around midnight in the 2900 block of Dunmore Drive.

A 60-year-old woman discovered the fire in her garage so she ran out to get help.

By the time firefighters arrived, the home was fully involved and flames were shooting out of the roof. The home is believed to be a total loss.

A firefighter, Joshua King, 30, was transported from the scene to Vanderbilt Medical Center when a beam fell on him, injuring his shoulder, according to Nashville Fire Department spokeswoman Kim Lawson.  Lawson said in a written statement that King was "doing fine."

Fire investigators are trying to determine if someone started the fire because the woman reported hearing a strange noise right before it started.

Murfreesboro fire

The second fire happened at a home in Murfreesboro and also started in the garage.

The fire occurred at a home in the 2500 block of Choctaw Trace.

Fire officials said a woman walked into the garage and discovered the fire. It's unclear what started it.

Firefighters stayed on scene to make sure it didn't become a big threat. 

Both fires have rekindled several times overnight. No one was hurt in either fire.

    A deadly virus is threatening the crawfish industry in Southwest Louisiana. It's called white spot syndrome virus and it was first discovered in Thailand, but somehow it made its way to ponds in South Louisiana and specialists are struggling to find the funds to research a solution.  “The catch was increasing and increasing and then it dropped 70% and that's when you saw the dead crawfish floating in the water,” said a crawfish farmer of 34 years, Ian Garbarino.
