LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Officials are investigating a fire that killed a man in the Portland neighborhood Saturday night.
"It wasn't until the fire department got on the roof that the smoke filled the neighborhood and it was like 'woah, hope he's not in there,'" says Edna Hensley, a neighbor. "But then when they brought him out we saw the worst of it."
Witnesses say the fire broke out around 11:00 p.m. Saturday night at a home in the 2200 block of Duncan St.
Hensley says she watched as firefighters tried to the revive the man she said was always friendly to her.
"That's hard for anybody to see... anybody. You don't want to see that. You don't want to see somebody go like that."
The coroner says 62-year-old Harvey Alvey died from smoke inhalation.
Relatives and neighbors knew him as "Jay", who lived in the home that once belonged to his late mother.
"Everybody in the neighborhood, they loved him," Hensley says. "He was a nice guy."
Another neighbor, Richard Bradley, said he would often visit with Alvey in the neighborhood.
"It's sad you know that it happened," said Bradley.
Hensley said before Alvey's mother died, the two would often clean up the area in from of the house. "They were very close. So when she passed, he just kinda got depressed.
"He always helped his mom. It's a sad day that's all I can say," she said.
A cause on the fire has not been released. Calls from WDRB News to the fire and arson officials were not returned.
