LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Fast moving, severe thunderstorms brought heavy rain, high wind, hail and lightning to the Louisville metro area Wednesday afternoon.
A MetroSafe supervisor said lightning strikes were believed to be the causes of fires that damaged a home in the 200 block of East Oak Street in Old Louisville, and a fire that heavily damaged an apartment building in the 35-hundred block of Brockton Lane in the Hikes Point area.
No one was hurt in either fire, but a firefighter was treated for heat exhaustion at the fire in the Hikes Point area.
That fire displaced nearly two dozen families living in the building.
Louisville Fire Chief Greg Frederick tells WDRB news that the fire started in the attic and spread throughout the building.
Frederick says, "We're going to have water damage on the top floor, it wont be habitable for some time, but I would not say it's a total loss."
Onlookers and residents stood outside the building, watching it go up in flames.
There were only four people inside the building when it caught fire. Chassie Burba was one of them.
"It's sick to know that everything you've worked so hard for and try to make a life is just gone in 15 minutes," says Burba.
The Red Cross is working with people displaced by this fire to get them food, clothing, and shelter.
