One dead in Bardstown fire

A fire killed one person early Tuesday morning near Bardstown.

One man died and another made it out of a burning home at 610 Briarcliff Road, Bardstown Fire Chief Anthony Mattingly said.

The Nelson County coroner's office identified the man as 44-year-old John Mudd.

The chief said the fire began about 1:30 a.m. at the partial log home, about eight miles from Bardstown in Nelson County.

The Kentucky State Fire Marshal's Office is investigating, but there is no indication that it is suspicious, Mattingly said.
