The Lexington Fire Department has determined that an apartment fire Wednesday morning was intentionally set.

The fire broke out on Wednesday morning at 1472 Versailles Road in Lexington.

No one was injured.

But investigators say 12 people will be displaced if the electrical services are not restored.

Officials are investigating the apartment fire as arson.

Battalion Chief Joe Best says, “Our Department takes this incident very seriously as the fire was set in an occupied building and could have resulted in a loss of lives.”
