By Mike Cooper, West Kentucky Star Staff
MAYFIELD - An early morning fire Wednesday destroyed an apartment house at 8th and Hale Streets in Mayfield, across the street from Mayfield Middle School.

According to Mayfield Fire Chief Jeremy Creason, upon arrival on the scene at 1:32 am, the structure was engulfed in flames. He said the building was a total loss and, at this time, the cause is undetermined.

The structure, which at one time had been a single family dwelling, had been converted into five apartments, two on the ground floor, two upstairs, and one in the basement.

All tenants escaped the building safely and no injuries were reported.

Chief Creason said, that becuase of the massive damage to the structure, and being close to Mayfield Middle School, what was left of the structure was being demolished on Wednesday afternoon.
