The blaze broke out at the Brentwood Oaks Apartments, located at 100 Brentwood Oaks Drive, and could be seen as far away as I-65. Firefighters arrived on the scene by about 8 p.m.
While no one appears to have been injured in the conflagration, 18 units were impacted, and many residents have been displaced. Nashville Fire Department spokesperson Joseph Pleasant was still trying to determine the exact number of affected residents as of this morning.
Water pressure issues further complicated the response, as water needed to be diverted from the main water system with individual fire engines acting as relay stations.
Further investigations into the cause of the fire are ongoing.
