2 displaced by duplex fire in Murfreesboro

MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) -

Crews are investigating a fire that displaced two residents early Thursday morning at a duplex in Murfreesboro.

The fire occurred in the 2500 block of Concord Court around 12:40 a.m.

When crews arrived on the scene, heavy black smoke and flames were visible from the back side of the unit.

Crews said the fire spread from a fence, to the eaves and attic of the unit, according to Shift Commander Dale Maynard.

"The crews knocked the fire down quickly and extinguished hot spots. The unit received fire, heat, and water damage, but crews were able to contain most of the damage to the back side of the unit," said Maynard.

The fire appears to have started where the residents' garbage cans were stored, but the cause is unclear.

The displaced residents were offered assistance from the Red Cross.
