CEDAR GROVE – A Thursday morning fire severely damaged a home near Cedar Grove Road.


Southeast Bullitt Fire units responded to a call on a house fire at 599 Wilderness Trail around 10:45 a.m.

The homeowner, Rob Wafzig, was not at home when the fire took place.

The house received heavy damage to the roof on one side. Southeast Bullitt chief Julius Hatfield said an interior stairway leading to the second level had been damaged and firefighters could not access the upstairs rooms from inside.

Southeast Bullitt units battled the fire for several hours. Hatfield said a furnace in the basement appeared to be the source of the initial fire.

The Bullitt/Spencer County American Red Cross also responded to the scene.
