Fire crews in Owensboro were up early battling a fire at the Keystone apartment complex on Burlew Boulevard.

The Owensboro Fire Department tells us a call came in just before 3:30 this morning. When Engine 4 arrived the officer could tell that multiple apartments in the multi-family dwelling were actively burning.

Everyone inside made it out safely but a firefighter did sustain non-life threatening injuries.

According to OFD, 27 on-duty personnel responded for OFD as well as 3 off duty personnel for command, safety, and logistics. The Owensboro Police Department was also at the scene.

An official cause remains under investigation.

After a damp start to our Monday, the rain and skies gradually cleared for many of us and we were left with a pleasant and breezy, albeit humid afternoon throughout the Tri-State. The southerly winds paired with the clearer skies later in the day helped drive temperatures back into mid to low 80s for many of us. The evening ahead should remain dry and mild; after seeing temperatures around 80° dinnertime and 75° by 10PM, we'll fall off to a morning low near 69° in Evansville early Tuesday morning.
