Fire Causes Extensive Damage to Covington Home

Fire caused extensive damage to a home in Covington's Mutter Gottes neighborhood late Thursday afternoon.

Firefighters battled flames on the first and second floor of the house at the southeast corner of Sixth & Craig Streets. Heavy plumes of smoke billowed from the rooftop and could be seen from Downtown.

Covington Fire Department had the flames put out in roughly twenty minutes, Chief Dan Mathew said.

Some residents of the property wept nearby as the house burned.

The fire's cause has not yet been determined.
