New home burns to the ground

A family's brand new home burned to the ground early Tuesday.

Flames were seen shooting from the roof of the house on Keene Manor Way in Jessamine County around 6 a.m.

Firefighters rushed to the scene, but the fire was so intense, it destroyed the house.

Construction on the house had just been completed. A family was set to move in in two weeks.

The flames also damaged the siding of a home next door.

The house was in the Keene Run subdivision, which is off U.S. 68 near the Fayette County line.

Firefighters say they don't yet know what caused the fire.
