Lexington woman is taken to hospital after fire

A woman apparently suffering from smoke inhalation was taken to University of Kentucky Hospital after a fire in an apartment at 1317 Gray Hawk Road in Lexington on Wednesday night, according to the Lexington Fire Department.

Firefighters were called shortly before 7:30 p.m., and they got the blaze extinguished in two or three minutes, Maj. William Saunooke said. They were still at the apartment building several hours later making sure the fire was completely out and trying to determine its cause, Saunooke said.

The damage appeared to be confined to the woman's apartment, he said.
