Elderly couple die in Pulaski County farmhouse fire

An elderly couple died Saturday in a fire at their Pulaski County farmhouse.

Firefighters were sent to the home on Coffey Road about 3 p.m., public safety director Tiger Robinson said. As firefighters approached the house, which was a mile and a half off the road, they could see that it had collapsed, Robinson said.

Snow and ice made it difficult for crews to reach the structure, but Robinson said the delay did not make much of a difference.

The names of the victims had not been released as of Sunday night.
