Man hospitalized after rescuing family in Madison fire

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A man ended up in the hospital after rescuing several family members from a house fire Thursday in Madison.

Crews were called to the 200 block of Maple Street a little after noon, where they found smoke and flames shooting out of the back of the house.

A brother of the family helped everyone get out, including two young children, but he had to be treated for smoke inhalation.

"Got it under control very rapidly considering the amount of fire for this early in the day," said District Fire Chief Jim Holmes.

Fire officials believe the fire started in a first floor bedroom, then spread to the second floor, but the fire marshal is now investigating the exact cause of the fire.
