Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department's District 1 and Rescue 8 responded to a fire call at 1004 Ewing Boulevard just after 7:00 Friday evening.
Crews arrived on scene to the house, which was sectioned off into four units, and discovered smoke in the bedroom of Unit D.
According to Assistant Fire Marshal Tracy Summar, crews quickly extinguished the fire, which seems to have started in a bedroom. "The room only has minimal fire damage," said Summar. "It also suffered moderate smoke damage and a small amount of water damage." Summar also mentioned that crews did a great job keeping the damage to a minimum.
The residents of the affected unit were displaced and offered assistance from the Red Cross, but had another place to stay.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
