NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

An overnight fire destroyed an apartment unit off Whites Creek Pike on Thursday.

The resident of the unit at Haynes Garden Apartments was able to make it out safely after flames took over around Midnight.

Firefighters arrived to see flames shooting from the unit, but were able to put the fire out in under two minutes.

Their quick response is credited with saving other apartments from being destroyed, as they were able to contain it to one unit.

Crews told News 2 their station is less than a mile away from the complex.

The tenant has been placed in another apartment building.

Officials are still investigating the cause.
