Fire damages apartment complex in East Nashville

Posted: Updated:

About a dozen people are without a home after a fire tore through an East Nashville apartment complex.

It happened at the CWA Apartments, housing for low-income families in the area. About six units were damaged.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but crews believe they know where it started.

Strong winds were fanning the flames, so emergency crews needed to work quickly to get the blaze under control. Residents say they feel fortunate they're safe.

No one was injured in the fire, but about a dozen people were affected. Red cross is assisting those families tonight.
