Fire severely damages Nashboro Village townhome

WKRN Channel 2 Posted: Oct 14, 2010 7:29 AM CDT NASHVILLE, Tenn. – One man was taken to the hospital early Thursday morning following a fire that broke out in the kitchen of his Nashboro Village townhome. Nashville fire officials said the blaze began around 4:30 a.m. in the complex located on Long Hunter Court. Crews extinguished the fire quickly, but the townhome suffered heavy damage. Firefighters were able to contain the fire to the one unit. "Each apartment on each side is all good," a fire department chief said, "but, for us to be able to take a row of six units like this, knock out a fire in the downstairs of one of them, and have everybody else go back home, is pretty good. The guys did a good job this morning." The victim was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He is expected to be okay. The Red Cross will offer their assistance, officials said. The cause of the fire remains under investigation
