A Flood Watch and a Winter Storm Watch are out for the entire region late Tuesday through early Thursday. Heavy rain develops Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and may put down 1”-3” in some areas. Arctic air pushes in from west to east on Wednesday with heavy sleet and snow taking over. That setup could produce several inches of accumulation. Snow will slowly end from west to east Thursday as bitterly cold air continues to push in.
An early Tuesday morning fire claimed the life of 56 year old Carolyn Barkley.
Frankfort police say the fire broke out at an apartment building on Meadowview Drive. From the outside the damage was not visible, but the inside suffered heavy smoke damage. Neighbors say Barkley had
only been living at the apartment a short while and were extremely shocked that she was gone.
Firefighters say the fire was contained to that one apartment. They had to break through the apartment's window to allow smoke to escape from the room.
At this time, fire officials still don't know what sparked the fire and investigators are still looking into the cause.
