A young child playing with a lighter is thought to be the cause of a Saturday morning fire that damaged a northern Jessamine County home.
Fire crews from four agencies including Jessamine County, Nicholasville, Wilmore and Lexington responded to the fire Saturday at 204 Old Coach Drive in the Crosswoods subdivision and found fire conditions on the second floor.
According to the fire report, the Nicholasville Fire Department was on scene at 10:41 a.m., followed closely by the Wilmore, Jessamine County and Lexington departments.
"They were flowing water in about 10 minutes," Jessamine County Fire Chief Mike Rupard said.
The second floor of the home suffered extensive fire, smoke and water damage.
"The house suffered heavy damage to both bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs," Rupard said. "There was also smoke damage throughout the house."
