Posted: Updated:

OLD HICKORY, Tenn. – A fire at a storage unit complex in Davidson County destroyed property ranging from recreational vehicles to boats.

Fire officials said the fire broke out inside the Vanguard Secure Self Storage, located at 316 Martingale Road in Old Hickory, just after 11 p.m. Friday night. Witnesses on the scene said the fire could be seen from a great distance.

"It went up pretty quick, (it had) three story high flames, going up into the sky," said Kellis Chapman, Jr. who was one of several witnesses who reported the fire.

Officials said at least 10 units were destroyed in the 10,000 square feet complex. They said the building housed numerous RV's, campers, and boats. District Fire Chief Donald Alford said propane tanks caused multiple explosions after the fire started.

"All of the RVs were burning… each RV had two, 25 gallon tanks, and they were exploding when we first got here," said Chief Alford.

Investigators said they were working to determine the cause of the fire.

No one was injured as a result of the blaze.
