(La VERGNE) One person was displaced in a Tuesday afternoon blaze at a home in the 300 block of John Henry Drive in La Vergne  Firefighters were called around 1:30PM when residents reported heavy smoke and flames coming from the garage.

La Vergne Fire-Rescue was able to quickly get the fire under control. No one was home at the time and no injuries were reported.


La Vergne Fire Chief Ronny Beasley said, “The damage could have been significantly worse. Thankfully the homeowner had left the garage door shut to the home, preventing the fire from spreading inside.”

Doors can be one of the best pieces of firefighting and lifesaving equipment. Firefighters recommend always keeping doors shut, especially at night when you’re asleep.

The home did have working smoke detectors.

If your home does not have working smoke detectors, you’re encouraged to contact the fire department for a free inspection and installment of smoke detectors. You can find more information at fire.lavergnetn.gov.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
