Kentucky State police arson investigators are looking into a house fire on Lakeview Drive in Scott County. The man inside the home did not survive.
Neighbors say the flames at the home were shooting through the roof at one point Tuesday evening. The majority of the damage is in the back of the home. Unfortunately, fire fighters weren't able to save the man inside the home. The Scott County coroner won't release the name of the man who died until completion of an autopsy at the state medical examiner's office. Neighbors tell us the couple has lived in the home on Lakeview Drive for many years. They are a very well-liked, well-known couple.
"This is a really nice neighborhood to live in, it's a really nice home, they're really nice people. So, it's too bad," said neighbor Katie Brannon.
Firefighters tell us the investigation is now being handled by the state fire marshal. An autopsy will be preformed at the state medical examiner's office Wednesday morning.
