The house is on Clyde Circle.
Mt. Juliet police Capt. Tyler Chandler advised citizens to avoid the area as officers closed the road to fight the fire.
A caller reported seeing smoke coming from the window of the kitchen area with nobody home.
Upon arrival, firefighters determined it to be fully-involved, meaning fire, heat and smoke in a structure are so widespread that internal access must wait until water streams can be applied.
Crews remained on the scene fighting the fire.
UPDATE: Clyde Circle reopened at about 6:05 p.m.
