A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is out for for much of northern and eastern Kentucky until 9 p.m. This is just east of the Lexington metro.
A Jessamine County family is safe after escaping their burning home.
Firefighters were called to the home, on Handy Bend Road in Wilmore, just before 5 Friday morning.
The three people sleeping inside the home at the time are crediting smoke detectors for helping them escape.
The porch and the attic of the home sustained most of the damage from the fire.
Investigators are still trying to figure out how, and where, the fire started.
