LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Lexington fire officials said two people were injured Tuesday night in a blaze at home on the city’s far northeast side.

Officials were called out around 6:30 p.m. to a duplex in the 500 block of Anniston Drive.

Authorities said two people were injured, though both were out of the house when crews arrived. One was treated at the scene while another was taken to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Fire officials said flames were visible and smoke was thick in the area. One side of the home was completely destroyed by flames while the other was heavily damaged by smoke.

The home is a total loss, officials said.

The cause of the fire was not yet known.
