Fire crews worked at the scene of a late night fire in Murfreesboro.

Authorities confirmed the fire began around 9:15 p.m. at a home in the 1700 block of St. Andrews Drive.

Crews said the home was fully engulfed in flames when they arrived on the scene.

"Ladder 9 was able to get a quick knockdown on the fire enabling crews to make entry," said Shift Commander Dale Maynard. "However, despite crews' best efforts, the home is likely a total loss."

The cause of the fire remained unknown. Authorities said the Fire Marshal's Office had been called in to investigate.

Officials confirmed there was a 19-year-old woman home at the time, but she was able to make it out safely.

No injuries were reported.

Four people living in the home were displaced by the fire. They were receiving help from the American Red Cross.
