RUTHERFORD COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – Rutherford County Fire Rescue crews responded to a fire at a duplex Monday afternoon, according to a release from RCFR.

Crews say when they arrived they saw fire and smoke coming from the roof on one side of the duplex.

The fire was contained quickly and little damage occurred in the unit. No injuries are being reported at this time.

Officials say the cause of the fire is electrical in nature.
