Firefighting effort at Fern Creek home becomes more complicated

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A fire at a Fern Creek home became more complicated than usual.

Firefighters arrived at the home about 11:00 Friday morning.  When they arrived, the front portion of the home was on fire.

But there was another problem that forced them to change their course of action, as Chief Mike Schmidt with the Fern Creek Fire Dept. explains:  "We had a water main break in front of the house, and a live wire come down.  Of course, water and electricity don't mix, so that caused a few extra problems getting the fire under control initially."

It took about 15 minutes to get the fire under control.  No one was hurt.  Metro Arson is investigating the cause of the blaze.
