Four fire departments were dispatched to a structure fire at 3193 Sunfish School Road (KY HWY 238) Wednesday evening around 5pm; however, the home was too far gone when firefighters arrived to even attempt to tame the blaze.
Bear Creek, Kyrock, Lincoln, and Brownsville Fire Departments were in route when Bear Creek, who arrived first on scene, called off the other departments because nothing could be done.
The structure was the home of Darrell Glenn, who was not in the home at the time. Glenn said he'd been at a friend's place helping with some mechanic work. Everything was lost in the fire, including three dogs that belonged to Glenn; dogs he said were valued at around $500 each.
The Bear Creek Fire Department remained on scene to ensure the fire stayed contained, but with approximately four inches of snow and single degree temperatures, chances of the fire spreading elsewhere were extremely low.
The cause of the fire was not immediately known.
