WACO, Ky. (WTVQ) – A family in Richmond is now without a home after a fire broke out Monday morning.
Captain Herb Lovett with the Madison County fire department said when he arrived he was actually off duty and came to help crews as he was the first one on scene.
Captain Lovett said he lives just down the road, “I’m off duty most comfortable and I come down to try to help Crews out when I got here it was heavy fire in the kitchen area.”
He said they are thankful that they were able to get everyone out safely and that his men were able to get to work as quickly as they could.
No one was injured but the home is a total loss.
Crews say that it started in the kitchen but do not the the exact cause.
The fire is still under investigation.
