LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A "discarded cigarette" is to blame for a fire that caused major damage to several condos in Bashford Manor on Thursday afternoon.

Buechel Fire Department Chief Adam Jones says a cigarette was not properly put out on the balcony of one of the units on Donard Park Avenue. The flames then spread quickly due to windy conditions.

Officials say no residents or firefighters were injured.
