SHEPHERDSVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Crews from as many as nine different departments battled a fire in downtown Shepherdsville overnight.

The call came in to Bullitt County Dispatch around 3:00 a.m. to the Ridgemont Furniture Store at the corner of 1st St. and S. Buckman. When firefighters arrived they say flames were shooting through the roof.  It took them three hours to get the fire under control.

Firefighters say the fire originated in the middle of the building in what once was the wood shop. A garage next door was also damaged. The part of the building that was the store's showroom does not appear to have much damage.

Firefighters say there was no one in the building when the fire broke out, and no one was hurt.

Investigators will remain on the scene to make sure the fire does not pop up again and spread, and to look for a cause.
