Firefighters battle cold as well as flames

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Firefighters from three departments battled the cold at a fire in Okolona this morning. It started just after 10 a.m. at the Black Widow Customs Shop in the 5700 block of Preston Highway.

Firefighters from Okolona, Camp Taylor and Buechel were able to keep the flames inside that shop, although the owner of the business next door says he has smoke damage.

No one was seriously hurt - but some firefighters did slip and fall on the ice while battling the blaze.

Public works officials brought in salt to keep the water from freezing.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
