LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)– Crews in Lexington were called out to a fire just south of the University of Kentucky’s campus. It happened around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday at a home on Barberry Lane.Officials say after setting up a bonfire, the residents put the flames out with water then placed the ashes in a recycling bin. However, the ashes rekindled, setting the bin on fire, which then spread to the garage. One person woke up to the flames and woke up everyone else in the home. Crews say they were able to know down the fire pretty quickly.
