RUTHERFORD COUNTY, TN (WSMV) - Arson investigators are looking into a fire which destroyed a home on Brown's Chapel Road on Sunday afternoon.
Crews from the Rutherford County Fire and Rescue, Almaville Volunteer Fire Department, Murfreesboro Fire Rescue Department, and Rutherford County EMS responded to the fire just after 4:00 p.m.
When firefighters arrived, the home was engulfed in flames.
Deputies from the Rutherford County Sheriff's Office closed portions of the road to allow emergency vehicles to access the scene.
One person in the home got out safely.
One firefighter from the Murfreesboro Fire Rescue Department suffered non-life threatening injuries and was transported for care, officials said.
On Monday, 34-year-old Justin Goostree was arrested for aggravated arson in the case. He is also charged by Rutherford County Sheriff's Office on other charges.
The home was fully-engulfed in flames when crews arrived and it took over four hours to extinguish the fire. The heat and humidity required firefighters to take extra hydration measures and required additional crews from nearby counties.
Once the fire was extinguished, investigators from the Rutherford County Fire-Arson Investigation Unit, along with the LaVergne FD Fire Marshal were called to the scene, working into the evening collecting evidence and speaking with witnesses.
Officials say Goostree reportedly suffers from depression, and after the utilities were turned off at the residence, Goostree then allegedly borrowed gas from a neighbor, stating he was going to burn down the house.
