It had been there for decades, but on Friday morning a historic home in Rockcastle County went up in flames in a matter of minutes.
Firefighters were called to the home on Kentucky 1250 near Brodhead just after 5:00 Friday morning.
The woman who lived in the house wasn't at home, and there were no injuries.
The homeowner says the house was built in the 1940's and was made entirely of wood.
“It was a log house that had been refurbished. It was an electrical fire. It was fully involved when we got there,” says Chief Larry Taylor, Brodhead Fire Dept.
Taylor says there was nothing suspicious about the cause.
