Local News

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Crews responded to a fire that destroyed a home in Joelton early Friday morning.

The fire began just before 4 a.m. at a home in the 8600 block of Whites Creek Pike near the Robertson County line.

Fire officials told News 2 the fire was first reported by a passerby who saw the flames and called 911.

When firefighters arrived, the home was fully engulfed with flames and the roof had already collapsed. First responders began contacting neighbors to determine if anyone lived in the home since the structure was not stable enough to enter, according to the fire chief at the scene.

A car was parked in the driveway of the home also caught fire, however, officials said it’s not a car the resident regularly drives.

Firefighters changed shifts around 6:30 a.m. and continued to work the scene. Crews went back through the home with foam to prevent rekindling.

Whites Creek Pike was closed to traffic in the immediate area.

As of Friday afternoon, investigators had no injuries to report. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
