A 61-year-old man from Lynch was killed in a fire Saturday night in Harlan County.
Raymond Metcalfe was found inside a structure fire on 212 Church Street at 10:26 p.m., said Kentucky State trooper Shane Jacobs in a news release.
“Upon arrival, the dwelling was fully engulfed in flames,” Jacobs said. “Lynch, Cumberland and Benham Fire Departments were on the scene and while extinguishing the fire discovered a body in the home.”
Metcalfe was pronounced dead by the Harlan County Deputy Coroner Jim Rich.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation and no foul play is suspected.
