NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Nashville Fire Department responded to five separate fire calls in six hours overnight Monday.

On Selma Drive in Donelson, two people were injured in a house fire just before Midnight.

Firefighters said one victim suffered smoke inhalation and the other minor burns.

Then, just before 1 a.m., fire officials said a cigarette sparked a fire at the Highland Ridge Apartments on Due West Avenue in Madison.

Firefighters said the apartment's resident left a cigarette lit inside his home and left for work.

Neighbors smelled smoke and heard the smoke alarm and called 911.

Crews contained the fire to a back bedroom.

No one was hurt.

Fire crews also spent part of the night on Creekside Drive in Antioch, battling flames and the cold temperatures.

No injuries were reported.
