Young firefighters Anthony Retzleff (left) and Philip Markert take a break from fighting the blaze that destroyed the home on Lazy Lane in Lexington. Firefighters will tell you that it is not only dangerous work, but exhaustive, as the summer heat, coupled with the heat of the fire zaps energy from the human body quickly.

Firefighters will tell you that it is not only dangerous work, but exhaustive, as the summer heat, coupled with the heat of the fire zaps energy from the human body quickly. Working in tandem to fight the horrific fire, two Lexington volunteer firefighters get as close as the heat and smoke allow them to get in order to bring the blaze under control. While they are working on the west side of the home in this picture, you can see the flames lapping out of the roof on the east side of the home.

Friday, following the dawn of morning, the loss is all too apparent. The home owned by David Fahrancamp of Austin was presumed to be under rennovation. Whatever progress may have been made in that effort was completely destroyed by the fire. Friday, following the dawn of morning, the loss is all too apparent.
