Corydon 2UPDATE: HENDERSON, Ky. (1/17/20) — Within minutes, a Henderson County family lost everything.

Corydon Civil Defense Fire Chief Bryan Coghill said as he arrived Thursday evening to the scene of the fire, there was heavy smoke and flames rolling from the home.

Responders said the cause of the blaze was ruled as undetermined. Officials do not believe the fire was suspicious in nature.

Coghill said the mobile home is still standing, but uninhabitable. The residents were not home at the time of the fire, and the family lost two dogs.

The large fire bordered city limits, and with limited information from the 911 caller, county firefighters requested Henderson Fire Department to assist. 

“With no details on whether someone was still inside the home or not, we didn’t want to take any chances," Coghill said. "With city fire already on station 2 miles down the road, they were requested to assist.”
