Burn notice

A disaster that had been waiting to happen:

Multiple emergency units responded to a large structure fire Thursday evening in East Nashville that sent one person to an area hospital.

The fully-involved fire was reported before 8 p.m. at an abandoned fire hall near the intersection of Gallatin Road and Douglas Avenue.

The building itself has been vacant since 1989, but it had been recently deeded to a non-profit organization called NEON, affiliated with former Metro Councilwoman Pam Murray ....

The district's Metro Councilman, Scott Davis, says Murray is the vice president of NEON, and she had planned to use the building for an art center.

The seeds of destruction of a venerable old building were planted years ago by Metro Council.
