Millersville Home Total Loss In Early Morning Fire Sunday

MILLERSVILLE TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – A Millersville home is a total loss after an early morning fire engulfed the structure Sunday morning.

The call came in at 2:31 AM that a home in the 1000 block of Louisville Highway was fully engulfed. According to Millersville Fire Chief Brandon Head, the home was already 75% involved when his team arrived. The home’s location combined with the origin of the fire delayed detection, Head said.

According to Chief Head, the fire started on the outside of the home, and the home is located on a hill near a wooded area. The factors worked together to give the fire a head start before it was finally detected by the homeowner who was asleep in the home when the fire started, officials said.

According to Lt. Josh Wright with Millersville Fire, though the home carries a Louisville Highway address, Firefighters had to use Bellar Dr to access the home. MAP

Limited access to a hydrant near the home forced firefighters to “relay pump” water up to the fire which was shuttled in, officials said.

According to Chief Head, the fire started at the home’s carport and eventually enveloped the home. The cause of the fire has yet to be determined. No injuries were reported.
