MFRD Responds to Fire at Brad's Pool Shop
Updated On: Jun 02, 2014
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (June 2, 2014)
 
Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department

MFRD Responds to Fire at Brad’s Pool Shop (1802 Memorial Blvd)
 
Murfreesboro, TN –Murfreesboro Fire & Rescue Department’s Districts 4, 6, 8, Ladder 9, and Rescue 7 responded to a fire call at Brad’s Pool Shop located at 1802 Memorial Boulevard Suite C around 10:45 Monday morning.
 
When crews arrived on scene, heavy smoke was exiting the structure. Crews immediately began an interior attack. While crews were fighting fire on the inside, Rescue 7’s crew made forceful entry on the backside of the building through a bay door to clear out some of the smoke.
 
Being a pool supply place, crews had to exercise extreme caution due to the chemicals kept on site. According to Assistant Chief Kaye Jernigan, it appeared that most of the chlorine was in the front of the store and was undamaged by fire. “Some alkaline-based chemicals did receive fire damage,” Jernigan said. “City Engineer Sam Huddleston is on site assessing the hazardous materials threat.”
 
The fire appears to have started in the backside of the building, though the cause is yet to be determined. MFRD’s Fire Marshal’s Office is on scene conducting a routine investigation.
 
Four civilians were transported to Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
 
The pool shop, which spans two suite units, received heavy smoke damage, moderate fire damage to the back area, and some water damage. The adjacent business, First Cash, also received smoke damage and was evacuated.
 
Both businesses will be closed until further notice.
 
Memorial Boulevard from MTCS Drive to Heritage Park Drive was closed, according to Shift Commander Dale Maynard is back open at this time.
 
More information will be released as it becomes available.
