MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -

Multiple fire crews responded to a fully involved fire Monday at a home in Murfreesboro.

Two separate fire departments were called to the scene around 9 p.m. at a home in the 600 block of North Maney Street.

A commander called in a third crew as officials were told flames were "coming through the roof."

Upon arrival, crews quickly entered the structure to battle the blaze.

Fire crews had difficulty accessing the attic where the fire was most concentrated, and called in a fourth crew.

Crews were still on the scene as of Midnight Tuesday tending to hot spots.

All five occupants of the home, including three dogs, were uninjured from the fire.

The American Red Cross was called in to assist the family.

No further details were immediately released.
