Tim Corkran, who lives nearby, brought his sons, Clint, left, and Solly, right, to see the damage done by a fire Wednesday at 36 Mentelle Park in Lexington. The fire was reported shortly before 6 a.m. at the duplex. There were no injuries, and two cats were also brought out safely. Corkran said he heard it on the radio and brought his sons to "check it out".
The Lexington traffic center reported Mentelle Park was temporarily shut down between Cramer Avenue and Richmond Road until 9 a.m., possibly later, because of the fire.
Never miss a local story.
