Fire Seriously Damages Residential Building in Newport

Fire caused serious damage to a home on the 700 block of Saratoga Street in Newport on Tuesday evening.

Departments from multiple Northern Kentucky cities responded.

The homeowner was not home at the time, according to WLWT. John Van Eaton wrote at The River City News Facebook page that he is safe and that he was away from the property at the time, indicating that the home belongs to him.

Flames destroyed roughly 2/3 of the structure, WKRC reported.

The building was full of musical equipment and also housed a bar at one time, according to multiple Facebook accounts of the fire.
