MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) -
A Rutherford County home, which was used as a hospital during the Civil War, has been destroyed by fire, according to firefighters.
Crews found heavy flames shooting through the front windows of the home on Sulphur Springs Road in the Walter Hill community at about midnight, according to Rutherford County Fire Chief Larry Farley.
Firefighters trucked in their own water to fight the fire at the home, which was about 4,000 square feet, Farley said.
It took about an hour to get the fire under control.
One firefighter suffered dehydration at the scene and was transported as a precaution, Farley said.
"There was no one at home at the time, so the fire remains under investigation," Farley said.
The fire appears to have originated in the front of the residence.
One of the homeowners was treated at the scene for nausea. "It's understandable, seeing what's happened to the home," Farley said. "I wouldn't want to come home and find that."
