Two Kids Among Three Injured In West Nashville House Fire

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Three people, including two children, were rushed to the hospital Thursday night after firefighters battled a house fire in west Nashville.

Medical units were dispatched to the scene at 46 Twin Street just before 9 p.m. Firefighters said the initial report indicated that people were trapped inside the house.

"It's hard on anyone when they say there's someone trapped inside, whether it's a child or adult," said Nashville Fire Assistant Chief Chuck Hoover.

Officials shut down the cross street, Snyder Avenue, as they worked the scene.

Family members said they were outside the home when they noticed flames, and they broke out a side window to the home-- saving the three people inside.

When crews arrived, everyone had escaped and were at a neighbor's house, including a 51-year old woman, and 2 and 3-year-old children. One of the toddlers had to be transported via emergency traffic. 

Relatives said the 3-year old was badly burned on the belly and hands.

The fire chief said the two others were non-critical.

Fire investigators were trying to determine the cause. The home was likely a total loss.
