Coroner now notifying family of body found in apartment

Police are investigating after finding a man dead inside his apartment.

Firefighters were called out to Nancy Hanks Road Friday morning to check on an unresponsive person. Inside, they say they found a body and evidence of a small fire that was already out. They don't believe the fire was intentionally set. The woman in the apartment below told WKYT she smelled something funny the night before, and asked maintenance to check.

"It was just a strange smell. It wasn't like fire, smoky smell, it was just a strange kinda smell," explained neighbor Miranda Hales.

Fayette County Coroner Gary Ginn is notifying family of the death right now.
