LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – A kitchen fire drives a Lexington woman from her apartment, but she says it could have been worse.

The woman reported the fire at about 2:20 Saturday afternoon in a unit in Phoenix and Hartford Place Apartments on Martha Court near Eastland Parkway.

Firefighters arrived to find flames in the kitchen of the three-story townhome but quickly got the blaze under control.

Firefighters said the damage was “pretty significant” but was limited to the one unit.

The woman said it could have been worse because she is a ‘hard’ sleeper and might not have awoke had it been at night.
