COVINGTON, Ky. -- Massive flames tore through a Kenton County home Wednesday night, destroying the residence entirely.
The fire happened at about 11 p.m. at the home located in the 700 block of Mann Road.
The residence was taken over by flames and the roof was collapsing as Kenton County firefighters arrived at the scene.
Officials say the owner of the home lives in Independence, Ky. and was allowing his nephew to stay at the house.
He moved into the residence only two weeks prior.
The homeowner said his nephew was at work at the time of the fire and was not injured.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
