February 3, 2024 – Maury County Fire Department responded to a possible structure fire on Parsons Bend Rd near the Maury County Gun Club on Friday.

Units arrived to find a semi-detached barn fully involved and already collapsed with extension into the home on Division 2. Units stretched a line to the rear of the home to knock down the exterior fire as well as two lines to the front door for offensive fire attack. Members stretched two lines, one to the second floor and one to the first floor to cut the fire off.

Units were able to darken the fire down but dealt with extensive fire in the knee walls on the second floor which required vertical ventilation.

Several members went through 3-4 air bottles at this fire and experienced extreme heat conditions on the second floor due to the advanced fire in the knee walls.

Maury EMS monitored several firefighters for heat exhaustion.

Unfortunately, the home will be a total loss.
