House badly damaged by fire in Anderson County

ANDERSON COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ)- A home was badly damaged by fire in Anderson County Wednesday afternoon and the nearest fire hydrant was miles away.

Investigators say the fire broke out around 5:45 p.m. at a single-story home on Glensboro Road.

As is often the case in the rural areas of the county, there wasn’t a fire hydrant nearby.  Firefighters say the nearest hydrant was nearly four and a half miles away, which resulted in the additional, time-consuming challenge of getting water to the scene.

No injuries were reported.  The cause of the fire is under investigation.
