Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department’s District 8, Engines 1 and 4, Ladder 6, and Rescue 7 responded to an apartment fire at 1710 E Northfield Boulevard just after 9:30 Sunday morning.
Upon arrival, District 8 discovered heavy flames from the downstairs apartment window. Crews were able to get the fire out quickly.
