A fire caused significant damage inside a Woodford County home Wednesday morning.
The homeowner spotted flames in the mobile home along McCracken Pike and called 911 around 8 a.m. The homeowner got out safely, and there were no reported injuries.
It took firefighters three minutes to get there, but it was too late to save the home. Officials say the home may be a total loss. The homeowner says all material things are replaceable and feels lucky everyone got out safely.
"I saw the fire and got my dogs out and by the time I got back in, I was going to use the fire extinguisher, but I couldn't breathe in there. The fire grew too big. I don't know what happened," said Angie Stewart.
Firefighters say the flames charred only a small area, but the smoke damaged almost everything else.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
Donations to help the family can be made at Kentucky Employee Credit Union located at 100 Moore Drive in Frankfort, to the Angie Stewart Charity Fund, Account 11, in care of: Barbara L. Murray.
