This is what the fire looked like when emergency responders first arrived on the scene.
As the fire comes closer to containment, the neighborhood is filling with smoke.
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Three homes in the 600 block of East Ormsby Avenue went up in flames early Tuesday morning.
Fire crews remain on the scene and are getting the fire under control. Firefighters said the blaze started in one house and spread to at least two more, possibly three.
