Deadly fire in Rowan County

By  | 

It's a dangerous time of year for house fire and Saturday night, there's been a deadly one, in Rowan County.

The fire happened at a home on Bluestone Road, west of Morehead.

27 Newsfirst has learned one man is dead and a woman has been injured.

The Rowan County Coroner says the man killed in the fire was 60 year-old Ivan Trent.

Authorities say Trent lived in the mobile home, but it's unclear whether the rest did as well.

One of the people who got out just in time had to be flown from the scene with severe burns to her upper body.

Her name has not been released.

The others were not harmed.

Kentucky State Police, the Rowan County Coroner, and investigators with the State Fire Marshal's Office were on scene to figure out what may have led to the fire.

They haven't determined the cause yet, however fire officials say there was a wood stove, along with several space heaters inside the mobile home.
