Two Central Kentucky Homes Destroyed By Fire

Central Kentucky firefighters were busy Thursday morning battling two, large house fires.

In Scott County, fire ripped through a home on Enid Court, in the Lancelot subdivision.

The fire started in the garage shortly after 7:00 a.m. then spread to the two-story house.

The Georgetown home was destroyed, but the homeowners were able to salvage some of their belongings. Police say the family was fast asleep when the fire started, but luckily everyone escaped with no injuries.

The family has lived in the home for two years and say they plan to rebuild it.

In Clark County, firefighters battled a two-alarm fire that broke out in a one-story home on Iron Works Road.

Fire officials say a woman driving down the road, noticed the fire and called 911.

Shortly after fire crews arrived part of the home collapsed.

Fire officials say the fire was hard to fight because the home is in a rural area.

They had to carry in water to try and put out the flames.

Despite their efforts the home is a total loss, but luckily no one was home at the time of the fire.
