MADISON, Tenn. -- A Madison home is up in flames right now.
FOX 17 Reporter Justin McFarland is at a house at the 100 block of Sanitarium Road in Davidson County that has flames shooting from it. The Nashville Fire Department responded to the scene just before 5:30 a.m.
The homeowner, a disabled veteran, made it out. He spotted the flames when he went to check on his pets. The Red Cross is on the way to assist him.
About a dozen dogs lived on the property. None of the 17 dogs are reported injured.
Firefighters are investigating the cause, but it looks to be an electrical fire that started in the attic. The home is a complete loss.
