Two New Albany Homes Destroyed in Separate Fires

Fire destroys two homes in New Albany early Thursday morning.

The first fire was reported about 3:30 am at a home on Thomas St., near Market St. near downtown.

Flames engulfed the home and also spread to the house next door.

Police were called in to block several streets in the area.

Neighbor Polly Zoeller says she heard popping and looked out her window.

"That's when I saw the flames, already the whole back of the house was already going up.  I called 911 right away.  When i finally got off the phone with them, I threw on some flip flops and ran down the sidewalk and beat on the front door," Zoeller said.

Zoeller says the home is rented.

Two firefighters were hurt, one with smoke inhalation, the other with a shoulder injury.

And while firefighters were still on the scene at Thomas Street, another fire breaks out in New Albany.

This fire happened at a home on Cherry Street, near State Street around 5:30 am.

Additional fire crews were called in from Jeffersonville to assist the New Albany Department.

One person was in the home at the time but escaped without injury.

The New Albany Fire Chief says both homes appear to be a total loss.
