LOUISVILLE (WAVE) - Several people are looking for a new place to live after an overnight destroyed their Clifton home.

The call went out just after 11 p.m. to the 1700 block of Mellwood Ave.

There were two units in the home. The people living in the front of the building got out safely, and the back unit's tenants were not home at the time.

Dispatchers say the fire originated in the back of the building, and spread to a neighboring house, but firefighters were able to keep the flames from causing significant damage to that home.

Arson officials were investigating.

No one was injured in the fire but there was significant damage to the building. The Red Cross is helping those who were displaced.
