Body Found Inside Charred Garage Apartment

More Video...

A fire in Woodford County left one person dead and now investigators are trying to figure out how it started.

The fire gutted a garage apartment on Shore Acres Road in the Millville community of Woodford County sometime in the overnight hours on Monday.

Police say someone driving by, noticed the damage about 8:00 on Monday morning and called 911.

Family members tell us Alonzo Samuels was the only person who lived in the apartment. The body has not been positively identified yet, but family members are sure it is Samuels.

There's also no word yet on what may have started the fire, but arson investigators were called in to investigate.

Family members say Samuels moved into the garage apartment after his home burned down a few years ago.

    I keep hearing this thing about this being an apartment, this was a garage with out water,and a tolet. The water hoe was not even close to the house. The other owner had a house that look like a castle conpare to this. This was a thing were a lawyer befriend him and and let him down. Knowing he had six kids.I wonder if he had water inside would had may a different.The health department had been call at one time and they said if he wanted to live like that, there was nothing they could do.But god will take care of this in his own way.Thank you for your prayer and blessing at this time.
