When no one answered the door, CFR made entry. A small fire was found in the bedroom. CFR quickly put the fire out before it could advance to the rest of the apartment. The bedroom had fire damage but the rest of the apartment just suffered smoke damage.

According to witnesses, the power had been out in the area. Shortly after power was restored, they heard the smoke detector go off and could see some smoke coming out of the apartment. There was mass power outages Thursday all over Clarksville due to high winds in the area.

The apartments tenants were away at the time. There were no injuries caused by the fire.
