NASHVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) – The Nashville Fire Department responded to a single-family home fire Sunday morning that it said was totaled in flames.

At approximately 4:13 a.m. the fire department responded to 300 6th Street in Nashville to an active fire.

Fire Chief Chris Joyner said it took crews approximately 20 minutes to get the initial fire out, but firefighters were still at the scene by late morning.

Joyner said the severity of the blaze totaled the house and was making it difficult to pinpoint a cause, slowing the investigation.

Additionally, a parent and two children were treated on-scene for non-life-threatening injuries and were not transported to the hospital. Joyner also said the family is now displaced, but is staying with relatives.

Finally, Joyner said he expects crews to have to go back to the dwelling on Monday to wrap up the investigation, as the structure is still struggling to cool at this time. However, he said crews will remain trying today.
