LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Fire crews worked to put out flames at a home on Algonquin Parkway.

The fire was reported in the 900 block of Algonquin Parkway at 8:50 a.m. Tuesday, according to Louisville Fire & Rescue Capt. Salvador Melendez.

When fire crews arrived, they saw light smoke coming from the eaves of the home and found fire in the basement.
