A home was destroyed overnight in a large fire in Mt. Juliet.
The blaze was reported at about 1:30 a.m. Thursday on Paradise Drive, between Cedar Creek and Nonaville Road.
Mt. Juliet Police Captain Tyler Chandler said when firefighters got to the home, it was engulfed. Crews had to perform defensive operations.
Mt. Juliet Fire Department requested assistance from the Wilson County Emergency Management Agency to help get water to the property because there was a lack of fire hydrants in the area.
Police said the six people who were inside the home when the fire started got out alright.
The cause of the blaze was unknown.
