Fire Department Warns of Scam by Man Claiming his House Burned Down

lex fire dept 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (5/9/13)— In the last few months the Lexington Fire Department has received several complaints. Apparently, a male subject has been approaching citizens, asking for financial assistance, claiming his home burned down “over off Harrodsburg Rd around midnight.” The Fire Department has found that all of these claims are false.
 
The Lexington Fire Department would also like you to know that this set of circumstances would be unlikely. The Fire Department coordinates with the local Red Cross and several other charitable agencies when someone’s home is damaged by fire. These organizations provide food, clothing and housing for the victims for several days after the event, allowing them to get their affairs in order. The Red Cross attends to these issues while the Fire Department is still on scene extinguishing the blaze. There simply would be no need to begin asking for help a few hours after a home was destroyed or damaged by fire.
 
If you feel that someone is in need because of a fire in their home, you may call Lexington Fire Department Community Services at 859-231-5668 or 859-231-5600 after hours.
 
If you wish to report suspicious activity, please call the Lexington Police at 859-258-3600.

As always, to report an emergency to either Police or Fire, please call 911.
