Coroner: One dead in Henderson Co. house fire


CORYDON, Ky. (WEHT) — One person is dead after a house fire in southern Henderson County on Saturday morning.

The Kentucky State Fire Marshal was called to a working structure fire in the 8200 block of Pritchett Crooks Road just before 11 a.m. in Corydon.

The Henderson County Coroner was called to the scene around 11:45 a.m. The victim was identified as 67-year-old Susan G. Givens.

The coroner says the victim’s body has been taken to the medical examiner’s office in Madisonville. An autopsy is set for Sunday morning.

Authorities said that a gas leak prompted the house to explode and ultimately led to the fire and collapse of the structure. The home burnt completely to the ground.

The investigation is still ongoing.
