When emergency personnel arrived, the vehicle's engine compartment and the driver's compartment were on fire. The fire units extinguished the fire and at that time a body was found trapped in the driver's seat. Coroner Larry Bevil was notified and responded to the scene as well. He pronounced the victim dead at approximately 8:49 a.m., authorities said.
Authorities haven't positively identified the victim. The body has been transported to the State Medical Examiner's Office in Louisville for an autopsy and positive identification. The investigation is ongoing at this time.
