(WHAS11) – It took firefighters an hour and a half to battle a large house fire Monday afternoon in the 5000 block of Briscoe Ridge Lane, which is a new subdivision off of Bates Lane in the south end.

The fire started in the basement, but the exact cause is still unknown.

No one was home when the fire broke out, but a mother and her four children lived there.

As firefighters were battling the blaze, the flames became so intense that the firefighters were ordered out of the home for safety.

The home was destroyed.

The Red Cross says they will be assisting the family.
