MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

A fire broke out Saturday afternoon at the Old City Hall building in Lone Oak, Kentucky on Cumberland Ave.

According to Lone Oak Fire Chief Larry Freeman, an apartment upstairs received extensive damage including a complete loss to one room. Downstairs, a dog grooming business had extensive smoke damage. 

A worker in the dog grooming business smelled smoke and called the fire department. The dogs were got out safely and nobody was at home in the upstairs apartment. No injuries were reported.

Freeman says there is a high probability that the cause could be from some old wiring. The building is very old. He says there were talks about tearing the building down after the city was dissolved back in 2008.

The fire Marshal will be called in to investigate.
