A mobile home in Garrard County was destroyed by fire early Tuesday, authorities said.
No one was home when the blaze broke out shortly after midnight on Roy Walker Davis Road outside the county seat of Lancaster, authorities said.
However, fire officials said one of the grief-stricken homeowners was taken to Fort Logan Hospital in nearby Stanford.
Fire crews rushed to the scene of the blaze, but the structure essentially had been destroyed by the time they arrived, authorities said. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
