Fire damages north Lexington house

A north Lexington man is out of his home, at least for a while, after fire broke out on the second floor late Sunday night.

Firefighters were called to 163 Glenn Place, between N. Limestone and Bryan Avenue, at about 9:30 p.m. to combat a fire that neighbors said shot flames more than 20 feet in the air.

The homeowner escaped before firefighters arrived and quickly extinguished the flames. Officials on the scene said they did not know the cause of the fire or the extent of the damage.
