LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) --A fast-moving fire tore through a home in rural Clark County Monday afternoon.
A burned-out shell and charred rubble and debris remain at the scene off Charlestown-Bethlehem Road. New Washington Volunteer Deputy Fire Chief Chris Dickey said the fire started around 1:45 p.m. Monday.
Dickey said the closest fire hydrant was five miles away, which made the flames complicated to fight. He said the home is a total loss.
"In the rural area, it's unfortunately common due to the distance we have to travel to get to a house or residence," said Dickey.
Firefighters have not released a cause on what sparked the flames. Dickey said no one was home when the fire started.
Dickey said one firefighter was taken to the hospital from the scene. The intense heat combined with scorching flames led to exhaustion. Officials say he should be ok.
