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.
