LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A man is recovering at University Hospital after his house went up in flames Monday night on Sylvia Street in Schnitzelburg.
Jenny Keen said her son, J.B. Keen, was lighting candles in his house when one of them caught the house on fire. The fire was contained to the front portion of that house by fire crews. Keen has significant burns on his lower torso and burns on his upper torso.
A neighbor, Scout Barlow, said he had just spoken to Keen before the fire.
"I asked if he was moving because all of his stuff was out here and he said he lost his house," said Barlow. "The next thing I know I saw the fire trucks down here."
Barlow said another neighbor pulled Keen onto their lawn to get him away from the fire. He said Keen's foot was also severely burned.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
