Lexington home badly damaged by fire

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A house fire sent heavy smoke and flames into the sky Tuesday night over Lexington.

You could see the smoke billowing from Cantrill Court for miles.

The fire started around 7 p.m., after neighbors reported hearing an explosion.

A fire investigator was called in to figure out what caused it.

"The back of the house has a couple garage-type areas and she is going to concentrate on that, and looking at that to rule out all the possibilities, but right now we have no idea," Brian Wainscott, with Lexington Fire Department, told WKYT.

A man and woman were at home when the fire started, but they were not hurt.
