Crews respond to house fire on Seelbach Avenue
A call about the fire was received at 5:37 a.m.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Fire and Rescue crews responded to a house fire in the 1000 block of Seelbach Avenue in the Beechmont neighborhood Saturday morning.
Major Jason Galloday said the house was boarded up and vacant. When crews arrived, flames were shooting out the roof and half the house was fully involved. There were a lot of items stored in the house and attic, which made checking every corner of the home and putting out the fire more complicated, said Galloday.
According to Galloday, the gas was already shut off, and there was no electricity in the home. An arson investigator was called to the scene.
No one was hurt. Some of the siding on the home next door melted, but the fire was contained to the house on fire. Galloday said 70 percent of the home is damaged.
Officials say a call about the fire was received Saturday at 5:37 a.m. It took 22 minutes to put out the fire.
