  Email   Print

Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department's Districts 1 and 2 responded to a fire call at Jennings and Ayers Funeral Home located at 820 South Church Street just before 5:30 Friday afternoon.

Crews discovered heavy smoke in the basement of the structure and located the fire in the funeral home's old embalming room.

A line was pulled and the fire was extinguished quickly. Firefighters also checked for extensions. Damage was contained to the room of origin.

"The fire started when a light in the old embalming room shorted," said Shift Commander Daryl Alexander. "Employees were lucky that they went downstairs before they left for the day; if this was not discovered until later, circumstances would have been much different," he continued.

Jennings and Ayers will remain open for business as usual.
