Father hurt in house fire in La Vergne

Posted: Updated:
LA VERGNE, TN (WSMV) -

One person was hurt in a house fire in La Vergne on Friday morning.

The father of the family who lived at the home on Old Farm Trail dislocated his shoulder and has some minor burns after trying to put out the fire.

He was taken to the hospital, but officials say he should be fine.

The fire department says the high winds may have caused the fire to spread more quickly than usual.

The fire is now under control, but crews are still watching some hot spots.

The home is said to be a total loss.
