Date Street home damaged by fire

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A home in the California neighborhood suffered heavy damage from a fire that broke out on Oaks Day.

Louisville firefighters were called to the 2100 block of Date Street just before 10:30 a.m. When they arrived a heavy volume of fire was coming from the two story building.

Captain Sal Melendez, a Louisville Fire Department spokesman, said firefighters were able to contain the fire the house where it started, but homes on either side suffered damage to siding.

Melendez said a family of three was home in one of the neighboring homes but were able to get out on their own.

No one was injured. It took 28 firefighters 27 minutes to bring the fire under control.

Arson investigators have been called to the scene to determine how the fire started. Melendez said the house where the fire started had been vacant for the last two months, but still had gas and electrical service.
