From the Red Lick Volunteer Fire Department:
The house fire started sometime around midnight, and crews were not able to get finished up until 3:30 in the morning on highway 421 just North of the Big Hill store.
Berea FD, Madison County, Waco VFD, and Red Lick VFD responded to the scene. According to firefighters, bolt cutters had to be implemented to get through a gate so that the truck could get near enough to the house to fight the fire.
Everyone was out of the house so no one was injured…one woman escaped without injury and the Red Cross is aiding her.
Kentucky State Police arson investigation are working on the cause of the blaze.
