DSC 8092DRAKESBORO, Ky. (6/12/18) — Although multiple fire departments responded this afternoon to a house fire in Drakesboro, the structure was a total loss after flames engulfed it shortly after 2 p.m.

Drakesboro firefighter Keith Waymon Knight said the department was paged out at 2:26 p.m. to 1155 Jacksontown Road, Drakesboro. Beechmont and Central City fire departments also responded as well as the Muhlenberg County Sheriff’s Office.

A rekindle of the fire was reported at 7:55 p.m.
