Quick Thinking Family Escapes Burning Home In Warren County

WARREN COUNTY, Ky. (WBKO) - A late Thursday afternoon fire sent a Warren County family running for safety.

Three adults and one child were inside a home on Bill Dedman Road when they say the house began to fill with smoke. Multiple fire units responded and quickly brought the blaze under control.

The homeowner says it was only a matter of seconds before every room filled with smoke.

"I got up and went into the other living room in front of the house and it was real smoky and I hollered and told them it is real smoky in here. I got to looking around and saw the blaze up in the chimney," says homeowner Nellie Oliver.

Everyone inside the home was able to escape safely. The official cause of the fire is still under investigation.
