LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man is homeless after fire gutted his house early Thursday morning. 

The fire started around 9:15 a.m. at the home on South 28th Street near Hale Avenue in the Parkland neighborhood. It took firefighters about 45 minutes to get control of the flames.

The homeowner says he was at work when a friend called to tell him about the fire. He says the news wasn't all bad. 

"From what I understand, they was able to save a brand new motorcycle that I purchased about two days ago, so that's a good thing," said William Burrus. "But it's material, everything can be replaced."

No one was hurt. 

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
