Floyd County Home Destroyed by Fire

A fire destroyed a Floyd County house Wednesday afternoon.

It happened just off U.S. 23 in the Dwale community near Allen.

Friends of the people who live in the home say they are safe.

They also say the couple bought the house less than two months ago.

Four nearby fire departments responded to the fire--Allen VFD, Middle Creek VFD, Betsy Layne VFD, and Prestonsburg FD.

They say the fire spread so quickly their water supply could not keep up, forcing them to drive up and down the narrow road to fill their tanks at a nearby hydrant.
