(MURFREESBORO) Just after 3:00 o'clock Monday afternoon (9/26/2022), Murfreesboro Fire Rescue responded to a kitchen fire at a home on Walton Drive. The road sits between Kirkwood Avenue and Houston Drive behind the Discovery School in Murfreesboro.
When firefighters arrived, flames were coming from the oven and quickly spreading to the ceiling. The blaze was quickly extinguished, and the fire was contained to the kitchen area. Firefighters reported that two adult females and one child escaped without injuries.
Again, the home where the kitchen fire occurred was on Walton Drive in the Bellwood subdivision, near the Discovery School.
A big thank you to Murfreesboro Fire Rescue engine 3, rescue 1, ladder 1, battalion chiefs 1 and 2, and safety 1 and 2 for keeping damage to a minimum and for their quick response.
