Fire crews from five departments were called to the scene of a blaze in Louisville Thursday afternoon.
It happened at 502 Koop Avenue. The home was destroyed. No one was injured.
The homeowner, Terry Richards, says two dogs were in the house when the fire started but a neighbor got them safely out.
Richards says he and his wife have lived in the house for more than 30 years.
Neighbor Lori Hansen said, “I was thinking I hope that nobody was in the house. That was my first concern. I was running around talking to other people that were here to make sure that the dogs were out and the people were out and nobody was home."
There was no initial word on a cause.
