NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A neighbor is credited for getting an eight-year-old child out of a burning home safely on Tuesday afternoon.

The fire was reported in the 4000 block of Miners Cove.

Authorities said it appears the blaze started in a pile of roofing material that was behind the residence before spreading up the side of the home and into the attic.

Officials said the child was unaware the home was on fire. A neighbor saw the flames and immediately called the fire department before getting the child safely out of the home.

The home suffered extensive damage.

The child was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center without injuries.
