Flames Destroy Home In Rockcastle County

Fire destroyed a home in southern Rockcastle County on Wednesday morning.

Neighbors saw fire coming out of the home on West Level Green Road about 7:00 and called for help.

Firefighters say the homeowner was at work when the fire happened and no one else was inside.

Neighbors say the resident was renting the house..while in the process of building another one.

"It's a total loss. We don't know what exactly caused it. Could be electric, could have been something left on in the laundry room. We don't know," said Chief Johnny Benge of the Western Rockcastle Fire Department.

Even though it appears much of the outside of the home is still intact, the fire chief says everything inside was destroyed.
