Lexington firefighters are investigating what sparked an intense Thursday morning house fire that spread to two other homes.

The fire started in a home on Nelson Avenue, off East Third Street.

That home burned to the ground.

Two neighboring homes also sustained substantial damage, and a fourth home had some minor fire damage.

At this point, firefighters believe all three of the homes that caught fire were vacant. The fourth house, with minor damagedid have a woman and her daughter living inside. They tell 27 NewsFirst that they woke up to the smell of smoke and got out of their home before firefighters arrived.

Some other families living along the street were evacuated because of the large amount of smoke.

Firefighters did have trouble fighting the fire because a low power line fell on one of their trucks as they were trying to put the fire out.

Midland Avenue, which is nearby, was closed for a short time as firefighters battled the flames.

Firefighters say nobody was hurt.
