Stubborn attic fire damages couple's home

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A Nashville couple awoke early this morning to a fire that ripped through their attic.

The fire occurred around midnight in northwest Davidson County on Drakes Branch Road near Kings Lane.

When crews arrived, smoke was coming from the roof.

Officials said they believe the fire started from an electrical problem. The blaze was contained to one side of the home but later rekindled around 3:30 a.m. 

Flames about 10 feet high were seen shooting from the roof.

Authorities said the residents did not have fire insurance.
