Several Agencies Called Out To Fight Maury County House Fire

CREATED Jan 6, 2014

COLUMBIA, Tenn. – Firefighters from multiple jurisdictions were called out to battle a fire that broke out in Maury County.

Heavy flames were coming from a home in the 3500 block of Highway 431 when crews arrived on scene around noon Monday. The house was about 20 miles east of the Columbia city center. 

The roof  of the house collapsed shortly after firefighters arrived.

Responding agencies included the Maury County Fire Department, Williamson County Rescue Squad, and the Flat Creek, Chapel Hill, and Berlin fire departments.

Crews used tankers to shuttle water from the intersection of Ash Hill Road and Highway 431, causing ice to form on the roadway. The Tennessee Department of Transportation was called to the scene to salt the roadway.

Residents were urged to use an alternate route while crews worked.

Officials said one person was home when the fire started out. No one was injured.

The cause of the fire was under investigation. 

An estimate of the extend of damages was not available.
