The Louisville Fire Department received reports of an apartment fire in the 2400 block of West Muhammad Ali Boulevard. Crews arrived to find a three-story, brick, multi-family dwelling heavily engulfed in flames. They immediately entered the building and one occupant was successfully rescued; all other searches confirmed no additional victims. The intensity of the fire led to it being escalated to three-alarms, requiring nearly 100 firefighters 90 minutes to bring under control. Unfortunately, three firefighters sustained injuries during the incident and were transported to the local hospital. Although the extent of their injuries was unknown, they were not believed to be life-threatening. The LFD Arson unit was investigating.
