The call initially came in as a dryer fire, and firefighters said the flames spread quickly through the three-story apartment building.

“The initial call came in that somebody had some sort of a dryer fire,” said Brian Haas, of the Nashville Fire Department. “When our arriving units arrived, by the time they got there, there were already flames and heavy smoke coming through the roof.”



Crews said the fire was knocked down quickly, and no injuries have been reported.

The apartments were badly damaged, and the Red Cross has been called in to help those displaced.

Authorities said the actual cause of the fire was still under investigation, and they confirmed the entire building was unlivable.
