Overnight fire seriously damages Smyrna home

A fire seriously damaged a home overnight in Smyrna.

The fire broke out at around 2 a.m. at a brick home on the 2400 block of Reed Street, officials say.

Crews worked to battle the blaze but were not able to stop the fire before it caused major damage.

A neighbor told FOX 5 that the owners of the home were on vacation at the time of the fire. The owners' two older children were able to make it out unharmed.
