A Main Street fire in Nicholasville damaged a building that houses Jessamine County property records Friday morning.

Firefighters got the call around 5AM. The Wilson Dean Building is where the county PVA office is located.

Authorities say the PVA office and a law firm--which is also on the first floor--were damaged.  Officials continue to investigate and are trying to determine the extent of the damage.

"Accidents happen at all times and fires occur in all places. Fortunately, someone saw the fire early enough and we were able to contain the fire and hold it where it was at the time without any significant structural loss," said Deputy Fire Chief Kevin Baker of the Nicholasville Fire Department.

Main Street was blocked off in that area for part of the morning. At this point, the cause of the fire has not been determined.
