A man died after being pulled from his burning home on Fourth Street in Corbin Friday night.

Carl Hammons, 44, was breathing after he was removed from the home but then went into cardiac arrest and died at about 10 p.m., said Whitley County Coroner Andy Croley.

He said Hammons may have had underlying medical problems.

No one else was inside the home at the time of the fire, he said.
