LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Local fire crew responded to four calls for service in a matter of a few minutes Saturday afternoon.

A pop-up storm that brought isolated heavy rain and lightning pushed through central Jefferson County and Metro Louisville.

Multiple addresses required assistance almost simultaneously and all four fires were brought under control in thirty minutes or less. Damaged varied at the homes from minimal to extensive at one home.

The streets involved were Shaker Mill Road, Nature Way, Woodhaven Place and Meadow Ridge Drive.
