Couple loses home in overnight fire

A Kentucky family will have to find a new place to stay after a fire burned down their house early Thursday morning.

The homeowner tells 27 NEWSFIRST he woke up to his smoke detector going off around 2 a.m.

He, his wife and cat escaped the home on Cedar Ridge, off Rankin Mill Road, in Pendleton County, near the Harrison County line.

The couple even had time to drive their cars out their garage before it caught fire.

However, the homeowner says it was difficult for firefighters to fight the fire, since the home is in such a rural area.

No one was injured.

So far, there is no word on what may have sparked the fire.
