Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A house in Edgehill was damaged by a fire on Monday night.

Crews arrived at a home in the 1500 block of Villa Place around 8:15 p.m. to find heavy flames and smoke pouring out.  

A young man was able to get his family to safety after the fire broke out.

"I ran in to get my grandmother first and then my grandfather and then my dog," said Ljuan Beechum. "Instinct just kicked in, I needed to put them first, before myself."

Firefighters were able to knock down the fire quickly, but there was extensive damage done to the inside of the home.  A fire official said the fire started in the rear of the house, and spread to the attic.

The cause of the fire remained under investigation.

No injuries were reported.
