home in Lexington.

Crews were called to the 800 block of Georgetown Street around 3:30 Monday morning. When they got there, smoke was coming from the home.

Lexington Fire Battalion Chief Jordan Saas says firefighters had trouble getting into the home because of debris piled chest-high in what he calls “hoarding conditions.” He says they have made entry to one bedroom which was clear.

Crews still haven’t been able to contact the homeowner.

A fire investigator is on scene working to determine a cause.
