KSP Detective David Dick is continuing his investigation
Kuttawa, KY (October 22, 2018) – The Kentucky State Police Post 1 received a 911 call at approximately 06:54 a.m. of a house fire on Stephens Road in Kuttawa. A 27 year old male in the residence was able to get a two year old female out of the mobile home, but the fire was too intense for him to re-enter. The male was transported to a local hospital, and then flown to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville for his injuries. The two year old was treated on the scene by EMS and released to her grandfather. A 29 year old female and an approximately 9 month old male, were not able to escape the residence. An autopsy will be scheduled for the female and infant to determine cause of death. Preliminary investigation indicates the fire originated in the living room. The Kentucky State Fire Marshall’s Office and KSP investigators are conducting an investigation into the cause of the fire.
