Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department's Engines 1 and 3 and Rescue 8 responded to two cars on fire in the parking lot of Richland Falls Apartments (526 Dill Lane) just before 7:00 Thursday morning.

When crews arrived on scene, at least one vehicle was fully engulfed in flames. The vehicle next to it also ignited. The initial vehicle's fuel tank was involved. Crews jumped into action quickly, spraying foam to extinguish the blaze.

Firefighters were able to contain the fire to the parking lot and away from the buildings. An airbag exploded and landed on a second floor balcony, but fortunately no one was injured.
