LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Neighbors may have helped keep a fire from doing more damage to a home than it already did and saved the lives of several pets inside.

It was a call from neighbors that brought Louisville firefighters to a home in the 3700 block of Greenwich Road in the Hikes Point area around 2:15 p.m. Major Robert Milliner, a battalion chief with Louisville Fire and Rescue, said flames were visible on the first floor when the first fire crews arrived.

After getting inside to attack the fire, five pets – three dogs and two cats – were rescued from the burning building.

Most of the damage was in the back of the house. The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Metro Arson Squad.

The owners of the house were not at home at the time of the fire.
