LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - An early morning fire forced a man out of his home in Old Louisville. 

Louisville firefighters were called out to the house on Second Street near Oak Street shortly after midnight Monday.

The fire appears to have started in the attic.

John Belles rents the home and told WAVE 3 his friend woke up and saw fire in the attic. Belles said his friend tried to put the fire out before the fire crews arrived by using buckets of water from the bathtub.

No one was injured and the cause of the fire remains under investigation. Belles believes the cause was an electrical problem.
