VIDEO: House Fire on Rossmore Avenue


A house fire in the 30 block of Rossmore Avenue in Fort Thomas occurred just before 5:00 p.m. today. Rossmore is off of S. Fort Thomas Avenue between Bivouac and Lockwood Avenues.

Firefighters from Fort Thomas, Bellevue/Dayton, Newport, Southgate, Highland Heights and Campbell County Fire District were dispatched to the street as firetrucks lined the street seven deep.

Flames were pouring out of the back of the home as firefighters went in through the front door and second floor to put the fire out.

According to witnesses on the scene, the homeowner was home when the fire broke out and called 911 to report a fire on her street. It wasn't until she went outside that she realized the fire was in her home.

Five cats were also in the home as firefighters worked to save the home. As Fort Thomas Matters was on scene, three of them had been rescued. At the time of this story being published, the fate of the other two were not known.

Rossmore Avenue, a cul-de-sac street with 22 homes on it, has had more than it's share of fires recently. The street has seen three house fires since 2006.

In March of 2016, a house fire broke out, also in the 30 block of Rossmore Avenue around 11:30 p.m. No one was hurt in that fire and four people were displaced.

On New Year's Day in 2006 a structure fire that was ruled electrical, occurred in the 10 block.

Amazingly enough, both of those fires were owned by the same family. Both fires were a complete loss and new homes were rebuilt.
