Crews arrive to find house fully engulfed in flames
Mt. Juliet firefighters battled a fully involved structure fire Monday afternoon at a home on Clyde Circle.
A neighbor called 911 when they saw smoke coming out of the house’s kitchen, and firefighters arrived at the scene at about 2:30 p.m. to find both floors of the house fully engulfed in flames. Mt. Juliet police officers closed the street and set up a bypass on Sleepyhollow Way so crews could battle the fire.
According to Mt. Juliet fire Deputy Chief Chris Allen, crews had the fire under control by about 5:30 p.m. and prepared to return to the station.
Allen said the home was about 3,200 square feet and mostly destroyed. There were no injuries as a result. Rehab 23 volunteers helped keep firefighters hydrated during the incident.
The cause of the fire remained under investigation Monday evening.
