Neighbor comes to rescue in Florence fire

FLORENCE, KY (FOX19) -  A fire in Florence could have been tragic if not for a quick-thinking neighbor.

It happened around 10 a.m. Thursday on Duncan Dr. just off Mount Zion Rd.

A family of three managed to get out safely, because a neighbor rushed to help.  But the home sustained major damage.

"There's a report that a neighbor saw this passing by, fire at the front door, went to the door and actually banged on the windows and notified the occupants there was a fire," said Robin Brunker with the Florence Fire Department.

A 100-year-old woman is reportedly among the family members that escaped the fire.
