Lexington firefighters responded to a small fire in the crawl space of a home on Addie Street early Wednesday.

According to fire officials on the scene, crews reported light smoke coming from the back corner of the home around 5:15 a.m.

Battalion Chief Jeff Nantz said firefighters found a small fire in the crawl space area and they were able to quickly knock down the fire.

As a precautionary measure, firefighters cut away a small portion of the floor to make sure the fire in the crawl space was completely extinguished, Nantz said.

Fire crews could only fit one fire truck down the small dead-end street. Firefighters ran one long hose from nearby West Fifth Street to help support the fire engine’s 500-gallon water tank in putting out the fire.

The American Red Cross was called to the scene to help out the resident until the floor could be repaired.
