MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- A chimney fire displaces a Murfreesboro family.

The family got out of the home on the 5000 block of St. Ives Drive safe, according to the Murfreesboro Fire Department.  Firefighters contained the  2:30 a.m. fire mostly to the living room and upstairs bedroom.

The fire spread quickly to the roof and attic area when firefighters arrived on scene. They made access to the fire in the attic by removing part of the ceiling.

The fire appears to have started in the fireplace. The fire marshal will be at the home later this morning to investigate further.
