NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — No injuries were reported in two Nashville house fires that were reported within 30 minutes of each other on Friday morning.

Sky 5 flew over the area, where heavy smoke and flames could be seen. Firefighters have since gotten the blaze under control.

Another fire was reported earlier in the hour at Kingston Street and Sultana Avenue. Fire crews have since contained that blaze, as well.
