One person died in a house fire in Frankfort on Saturday, Police Chief Wayne Briscoe said.

Briscoe said the fire broke out about 10:10 a.m. on Keeneland Court in the Silver Lakes subdivision. There was a heavy fire in a single-story home and a body was found.

The state fire marshal’s office is investigating the cause and origin of the fire, Briscoe said. The state medical examiner’s office and the coroner will work to identify the body.

There appears to be no foul play, Briscoe said.
