Louisville woman praised for saving others from fire

Posted: Updated:

A Louisville woman is being praised for her quick thinking during a fire early Monday morning.  It started shortly after five in a vacant house on South Fourth Street near Iowa Avenue.

The flames quickly spread to two other buildings, one of which is an apartment unit.  One resident says she started to smell smoke and so she ran to wake up her neighbors.

Karen Horton tells Fox 41 News, "We looked out the window next door and it was fire coming everywhere.  I knocked on this man's door and saved his life so that we could have got out."

Everyone was able to get out unhurt.  The families displaced by the fire are now being assisted by the Red Cross.  The cause of the fire is still unknown.
