Police: Bodies found in burned Madison County home

Associated Press

RICHMOND - Kentucky State Police say three bodies have been recovered from a house fire in central Kentucky.

The Madison County Fire Department responded to a home on Oakley Wells Road just before midnight Friday. The single-story home was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived.

Officials put the fire out but were unable to search the scene until later Saturday morning. Authorities recovered the bodies of three unidentified people from the debris. Investigators said the cause of the fire does not appear to be suspicious.

Madison County Coroner Jimmy Cornelison had confirmed the three deaths Saturday morning by 10:15 a.m.

The fatal fire occurred just two days after a house fire in Muhlenberg County killed nine family members and injured two others. Police say that blaze was likely caused by a baseboard heater that came in contact with a flammable material.
