A Lockport couple was left homeless following a house fire on New Year’s Eve.
On the afternoon of Dec. 31, the Kentucky River Fire Department responded to a report of a home on fire on Bethlehem Road. When Fire Chief Bill Reardon arrived on scene, the structure was already being consumed by fire.
“There were flames shooting out of the back when I got here,” Reardon told other firefighters on the scene.
After some tense on-scene research, it was determined no one was in the mobile home at the time, but three dogs were killed in the fire.
