Overnight fire destroys home and car in Rowan County

ROWAN COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - A homeowner in Rowan County will have to replace his house, garage and car after an overnight fire destroyed all three.

The fire broke out on River Road, off of U.S. 60, in Morehead. When crews got to the scene, they say flames were shooting about 40 feet into the air.

Firefighters say a garage was destroyed, along with a Corvette that was parked in the driveway. The fire also spread to the home, which caused significant damage.

The homeowner told WKYT he was working in Georgetown when the fire started, so no one was home at the time and no one was hurt.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
