LAKESIDE PARK, KY (FOX19) - Three people were rescued from an early morning fire in Lakeside Park.

Flames broke out around 4 a.m. Tuesday in the 110 block of Farmdale Court.

Erlanger dispatch advised three occupants were unable to leave the home due to heavy smoke and were trapped in a bedroom. The first unit to arrive advised the adult female resident to lower her 14 and 12 year old children from the second floor window to a waiting police officer. The officer then assisted the female resident out the window.

The fire remains under investigation, but investigators say the chimney area of the fireplace is the primary focus of the investigation.

Estimated loss is $350,000.
