HENDERSON, Ky. (WFIE) - Firefighters were at an apartment complex early Saturday for more than seven hours for what the department says is Henderson’s biggest structure fire in more than a decade.
According to the Henderson Fire Department, crews got to the Weaverton Apartment complex around 1 a.m. They say when firefighters arrived flames were coming out of windows on the second floor and through the roof.
Seven hours after being called to the complex, firefighters were able to get the fire under control, the department says.
The Henderson Fire Department says the building was built in 1931 as the Weaverton High School.
Reporter Aria Janel spoke with the owner of the complex who says he thinks this is going to be a total loss. As of now, there have not been any injuries reported from this.
According to the department, this is the “largest structure fire for The City of Henderson in over a decade.”
An investigator says the fire was unintentional and undetermined.
