A Murfreesboro motel was the scene of a small fire triggered by a series of unusual events. 

It started around 4 p.m. on Thursday afternoon at the Chrisman Motel on Broad Street. 

Fire officials say a truck leaving the parking lot snagged a low hanging power line. The power line fell on the building and created a power surge.  The surge led to a fire in two of the units. 

Crews were able to put out the fire fast.  No one was injured.
