Clay County man is killed in mobile home fire in Burning Springs

A Clay County man was killed early Thursday in a fire in his mobile home in Burning Springs.

Kentucky State Police Trooper Lloyd Cochran said the fire was reported about 4 a.m.

Relatives of the victim told arriving crews that he might be inside the single-wide trailer home, Cochran said.

Cochran said there was “nothing left” of the structure.

Clay County Coroner Danny Finley said the victim has been tentatively identified as Delmar Chester Edwards, 79. Finley said the remains would be sent to the state medical examiner’s office for examination.

A state arson investigator and state police were assisting the local fire department, Cochran said.

A cause has not been determined, but foul play is not suspected, Cochran said.
