Elizabethtown Fire Department extinguished a structure fire Tuesday night at a Keeneland Drive duplex.

Maj. Mark Malone said the residents were not inside the home when firefighters made entry and found a fire in the apartment’s laundry room. Fire officials believe the flames were caused by a problem with the dryer, he said.

The fire was contained to the apartment’s laundry room and the other half of the duplex was not affected, Malone said.

According to Malone, Red Cross was notified and provided assistance to the two adults and five children residing at the apartment.
