MADISONVILLE, Ky. (2/14/19) — Madisonville Fire Department crews quickly responded to a house fire on the 300 block of Graves Street this afternoon.

At 2 p.m., the front of the home was said to be fully engulfed in flames and smoke could be seen from the Pride Avenue area. Firefighters knocked down the blaze, and then began searching to make sure no one was inside.

Surrounding neighbors told fire officials the tenant moved out of the single-story structure a couple of days ago. There were still several personal items around the yard.

The house appeared to be a total loss, officials said. Firefighters were seen tossing the front of some type of heating unit onto the front lawn. Madisonville utility and police units also responded to the scene.

“When we arrived on scene, there was heavy fire in the front part of the structure,” MFD Chief John Dunning said. “It’s still early into the investigation to determine the cause of the fire.”
