Rains and erosion cause cave-in at Lexington home

LEXINGTON, Ky (WTVQ) – The Lexington Fire Department is urging homeowners to check their house foundations, both inside and out, for sign of damage after the recent heavy rains.

They posted several photos on their facebook page to illustrate why checking foundations is important.  According to firefighters, heavy rains are to blame for soil erosion around a Lexington home.  The foundations of the home had become so badly compromised, that the basement wall caved in.  Water lines inside the home were broken as a result of the cave-in.
