Four Residents Displaced After Murfreesboro Apartment Fire

CREATED Jun 21, 2014

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – At least four people have been displaced after an apartment fire in Rutherford County.

Crews with the Murfreesboro Fire Department were called a fire in one of the units at the Grove Apartments on Journey Drive just after 5 a.m. Saturday.

"When they located the top floor apartment in Building 7 and opened the door, that's when they discovered an apartment full of smoke and fire," said Shift Commander Dale Maynard.

Firefighters were able to knock down the blaze quickly, but because the sprinkler system activated two other units received water damage.

No one was injured.

Officials said the fire appeared to have started in the bathroom and was not considered to be suspicious.
