MFRD Battles Two-Story House Fire at 2631 Belle Rive Drive

MFRD Battles Two-Story House Fire at 2631 Belle Rive Drive


Murfreesboro, TN-- Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department's Districts 1 and 9 and Rescue 2 were dispatched to a fire call at 2631 Belle Rive Drive just after 11:30 Thursday night.

Crews arrived on scene to discover a two-story home fully engulfed in flames with heavy smoke showing. The roof, save for the portion over the garage, had already caved in according to Shift Commander Dale Maynard. 

After initial size up, crews saw no vehicle in the driveway or garage.

Shift Commander Maynard made the decision to begin a defensive attack on the fire to keep it from endangering the neighboring homes.

"We used the deck gun off Engine 1 and set up the aerial on Ladder 9, which gave us good control and helped us knock the fire down pretty quickly," said Maynard. 

Once crews got the fire tackled on the exterior, they made entry to extinguish hotspots on the interior.

"Fortunately, no one was home during the fire," said Maynard. However, the home owner is on scene now. The four occupants, a father and three children, will be displaced, but did not require assistance from the Red Cross.

MFRD's Fire Marshal's Office is on scene to begin a routine investigation. According to Assistant Fire Marshal Tracy Summar, the approximately 2900 square foot home appears to be a total loss. "We won't be able to tell much tonight, so will be out here again in the morning," said Summar.
