LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Firefighters with the Zoneton Fire Department battled a house fire in the Hillview area in Bullitt County on Tuesday.

Crews received a report about a house fire on Barricks Road just before 11 a.m., spokesman Rich Carlson said.

Those inside the home, including a woman and several dogs, were already outside when crews arrived.

Carlson said everyone involved are all okay. Officials believe the fire may have started in the kitchen behind a refrigerator near an electrical outlet.

The home received extensive damage and will need major repairs, Carlson said.

Carlson added that when weather conditions are this hot, the fire department does not hesitate to call in extra help to rotate replacements for firefighters while they’re on the job to give them breaks and keep them hydrated.

The fire has since been extinguished.
