Victim of deadly fire identified

Investigators have released the name of the man killed in a fire earlier this week in Carter County.

Kentucky State Police say the victim is 48-year-old Lewis Newton Musser, of Carter City.

Firefighters found Musser dead Tuesday morning, while fighting the fire at a home on Colen Branch Road, off Highway 1773.

Police say a student walking down the road to catch a school bus saw the fire, and alerted a neighbor, who then called 911.

Police say the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
