Fire damages building at Fern Creek car lot

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Fire damaged a Fern Creek car lot overnight. Dispatchers say the call came in around 2:00 a.m. to Unique Motorsports on Bardstown Road near Fairground Rd.

"A passerby coming down on Bardstown Road saw the fire and called it in," said Fern Creek Fire Department Major Todd Newman. "We got on the scene flames were coming out of the roof, but it was all contained to the outside of the building."

Crews were able to keep the fire from spreading to inside the building, but still don't know the cause.

Major Newman said the cold didn't affect his men, because the fire didn't take long to fight.
