LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Bullitt County mobile home was destroyed by fire and another home was damaged by heat from the intense flames early Thursday.
No injuries were reported.
Fire officials with the Zoneton Fire Department tell us the fire started just after 7 a.m. at the Whispering Hills Mobile Home Park in the 800 block of Barricks Road in Bullitt County near the Brooks Exit on I-65.
When firefighters arrived, they encountered heavy flames coming from the home.
"The intense heat was so bad that we couldn't make entry," said Zoneton Fire Chief Rob Orkies.
Efforts were hampered by a lack of a nearby water source, requiring firefighters to use 3,500 feet of hose to reach the a water hydrant with sufficient pressure.
"The trailer park is on private water," Orkies said. "So when we laid our initial 5-inch line, we kept running out of water because there was no pressure on the hydrants here."
Initial reports indicated that people may have been inside the home and firefighters were attempting to locate them when the owner showed up and told them no one was inside when the fire started.
"Fortunately for us, the homeowner did show up afterwards," Orkies said. "So we found out no one was in the trailer, so we had no rescue, which was very fortunate for all of us here today. Everyone that was an occupant was accounted for."
Another mobile home and car were damaged by the heat from the intense flames.
Firefighters from the Okolona Fire Department also responded. The cause of the blaze was not immediately determined.
