Posted at 4:48 AM, Dec 19, 2018

BOYLE COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– One person was taken to the hospital after a fire at an apartment complex in Danville.

It happened around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday in the 1000 block of Nokomis Street.

Officials say they were able to contain the fire to one unit out of the six-unit complex.

We’re told police had to kick in the door to the unit to get a man out, who was then airlifted to U-of-L Hospital.

It’s unclear how severe his injuries are.

Officials say the unit has extensive smoke damage and some water damage.

People in the other units were able to get out, but they’re having to stay elsewhere for now.
