LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - More than a dozen people were displaced after an early morning fire engulfed a Fern Creek apartment building on Saturday.

Firefighters believe the ignition source is inside a second-floor bedroom. Firefighters said everyone escaped without injury.

The 911 call came in at 4:06 a.m. from The Park at Hurstbourne, an apartment complex near South Hurstbourne and Bardstown Road. Residents in the unit where the fire started were awakened by a smoke alarm Neighbors then went door to door as other residents of the complex were evacuated.

At least eight apartments are a total loss, and 20 units were without electricity most of Saturday morning because firefighters had to shut off power.

Four departments responded to the three-alarm fire, including Fern Creek, Jeffersontown, Buechel and Highview.
