The fire department was called in to help after a barge got loose on the Cumberland River in downtown Nashville. 

The large boat somehow got loose overnight Wednesday and started floating down river.

The barge struck a dock on the west bank and bumped into an anchored Nashville Fire Department boat before they were able to get it under control. 

The boat was a little dinged up, but no one was hurt.
