Couple Escapes Burning Home

Lexington firefighters say a home suffered heavy damage during an overnight fire.

The home is located on East Edgebrook Drive. That's near Squire Oak Park, on the south-side of Lexington.

Two people sleeping upstairs heard the smoke detector going off, and woke up to find the garage on fire. The flames quickly spread to the upstairs of the home.

The fire was so intense at one point that firefighters were told to evacuate the home.

The cause is still under investigation.
