VIDEO: A massive fire damaged a South Nashville apartment complex Monday night, displacing residents and impacting at least 18 units. Emergency crews were called to the Brentwood Oaks Apartments around 8:15 p.m. before firefighters called for additional personnel to help manage the scene. The fire destroyed the entire third floor of the building and most of the second floor. The American Red Cross was called to help assist residents. The initial hydrants firefighters used did not provide enough pressure to battle the flames and water had to be drawn from the bottom of the hill at the complex. Gas to the building was cut off around 10 p.m. and NES also turned off power. The apartment complex is located near Old Hickory Boulevard and Nipper’s Corner. One viewer told News 2 smoke and flames could be seen from several miles away.
