MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Children and day care workers escaped a fire Wednesday afternoon at Merryland Child Care and Development Center.

Memphis Fire Department investigators say the building did have a working smoke detector.

The fire started because of bad wiring on the outside of the building, which is located in the 2500 block of Carnes Avenue.

Nine children and five workers were inside when the fire sparked. Nobody was injured.
