MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -

A fire broke out in a Murfreesboro home Thursday afternoon.

The Murfreesboro Fire and Rescue Department responded to a call shortly after 4 p.m. on Saxony Court.

Upon arriving to the home, officials saw heavy smoke and flames.

Assistant Fire Marshal Peas said the fire was located in the rear of the home in a covered patio area, but the fire spread to the roof and attic of the home as well.

"Firefighters worked quickly to extinguish the blaze," said Peas, "but it still took a good 30 minutes to knock down because of the size and amount of flames."

All five occupants were away from the home when the fire started and no injuries were reported.

The occupants have been displaced and American Red Cross was called to assist.
