Apartment fire near Okolona blamed on a dryer

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A dryer may be to blame for an early morning apartment fire near Okolona.

Firefighters were called to the Jacob's Landing Apartments on Medallion Court about 3:15 a.m. on Monday.  That's off Poplar Level Road, just south of Rangeland Road.

Fire officials say it took them about ten minutes to get the fire out, but no one was injured.  A laundry room and hallway were damaged.  

A woman wrapped in a blanket and sitting in a car says she and her three children were home, when the fire started next door. They plan to stay with family.

Firefighters from Okolona, Camp Taylor and Buechel all responded to the fire.
