ORIGINAL STORY:

KUTTAWA, Ky. (4/9/17) — An autopsy has been scheduled at the Medical Examiner’s Office in Madisonville Monday for the apparent victim of a house fire in Kuttawa early this morning.

Kentucky State Police received a fire alarm notification for a Lake Barkley Drive residence in Lyon County just after 6 a.m. A Lake Barkley Drive resident also called KSP saying his neighbor’s house was on fire.

Kuttawa and Eddyville fire departments responded and found fire and smoke coming from the residence. After the fire was extinguished, the body of 80-year-old Patricia S. Hoss was discovered. She was pronounced dead at the scene by Lyon County Coroner Ronnie Patton.

Police investigators assume Hoss died as a result of the fire and are awaiting confirmation from the autopsy. No foul play is suspected in the fire.

KSP was also assisted by Eddyville Police Department and Lyon County Ambulance Service.
