'We're just thankful to be alive': Kentucky healthcare workers lose home in fire
They spent the last year on the front lines of COVID-19 and now, a Jeffersontown couple will spend the next year trying to rebuild a home they lost in a fire.
Katie and Josh Davis are healthcare workers in Louisville. They’d fallen asleep in different rooms of the house one night and today, are just glad they woke up in time to get out.
“That was the worst day of our lives,” Josh Davis said. “It really was. Everything came to a halt. You’re just reacting to everything that’s going on. You don’t know the totality of everything. Your mind is racing.”
It happened on Sunday, April 25, just before 6 a.m.
“I woke up to the smell of woodchips or something burning,” Katie Davis said. “I went to our bathroom, opened the door and there were embers on the floor. I ran and got my husband and came back up.”
She said within a minute, the house was full of thick smoke. The fire alarms were sounding.
The Davis’ said they couldn’t have gotten through the last week without the help of their family and community.
