Crews Respond To Three Alarm House Fire

AXTEL – Fire crews from McDaniels, Hardinsburg and Falls of Rough Fire Departments were called to report of a house fire in Meadow Lake Estates just before 6 A.M. Tuesday (3/13) morning.  As crews arrived at the scene, they found a residence fully involved with flames along Meadow Lake Lane. Firemen worked about three and half hours to contain and extinguish the fire. The home was a total loss.  Neighbors are credited with waking the family and getting them out of the house.  No injuries were reported.  The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but may have been associated with the fireplace.  The American Red Cross was called to assist the family of 2 adults and 3 children.  Meade County RECC also assisted fire crews at the scene.
