Franklin Thanksgiving fire

A fire broke out at the Executive House condos at 613 Hillsboro Road in Franklin on Thanksgiving.

The Franklin Fire Department quickly extinguished a fire in a two-story, 16-unit condominium building early Thanksgiving morning, protecting occupants and containing damage to the unit of origin.

According to the FFD, firefighters were dispatched at 3:09 a.m. Thursday to Executive House condos at 613 Hillsboro Road. 

Franklin Fire Investigator Will Farris said the fire started in a bedroom of a first-floor, two-bedroom unit located in Building B. Two occupants were home when the fire started and tried to fight the fire themselves, which caused a delay in fire department notification.
