Fire at west Nashville home considered suspicious

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The fire marshal is looking for clues at an abandoned home in west Nashville.

The home at 46 Twin Street was destroyed after a fire ripped through it Friday afternoon.

Firefighters say it looks like the fire started in the living room and spread quickly.

"Flames was coming through the roof probably 30 to 40 feet in the air and I was responding from Centennial Boulevard, and I could see it from the fire station form Briley Parkway," said Terry Secrest, district fire chief.

The house next door also suffered heat damage, and the siding was melted. No one is believed to live in that home.

This is the second time this home has burned in recent months. Back on June 13, two toddlers and an adult were rushed to the hospital. The children's grandfather rescued the kids from the burning building.
