Former Franklin nursing home hit by fire

A fire damaged a former Franklin nursing home currently being renovated.

Firefighters received a call that smoke was coming from 1107 N. Main St., formerly the site of Angel Care, at about 5:30 p.m. Friday.

The fire started on the south side of the facility, and flames were contained to about one-third of the building. But firefighters had to battle the flames from outside, since the building was deemed an unsafe structure by the city last year, said Franklin Fire Department spokesman Chuck Ridpath.
