NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Firefighters battled an intense fire at a home near the Davidson-Rutherford County line early Thursday morning.

The blaze broke out at the home on Maxwell Road in the Cane Ridge area after 5:30 a.m. 

A live picture from the scene 20 minutes later showed the home fully engulfed.

Flames could be seen shooting through the roof, and quickly spread into the attic.

Numerous firefighters entered the home and made an interior attack.  Crews also attacked the blaze from the air.

One firefighter was injured after he fell through the home's first floor into a crawl space.  He was transported to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Fire officials said the home is owned by an 85-year-old woman who lives in Mt. Juliet.  The woman's son lives nearby and said he was just at the house Wednesday evening cutting the grass.

No one lived at the home although the son told Nashville's News 2 it has been in the family for years.

Firefighter said the home is total loss.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.

News 2's Jerry Barlar is on the scene.  Watch him live on USTREAM and refresh this page for updates on this story.
