NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A man and his dog were able to escape a house fire that destroyed a home in Antioch on Wednesday morning.
The fire broke out just before 5:30 a.m. at 12503 Old Hickory Boulevard, just off Murfreesboro Pike. The man said he put clothes in the dryer before going to take a shower, and when he got out he found his porch was in flames.
He and the dog escaped without injury.
Officials said the home was a total loss due to its age.
The Red Cross responded to the scene to assist.
