Man dead in Rowan trailer fire

A Rowan County man died in a fire at his house trailer Saturday afternoon.

Morehead firefighters found Ivan Trent, 60, dead in the bedroom of his home at 1971 Bluestone Road. When firefighters arrived about 4 p.m., the trailer was engulfed in flames.

The cause and origin of the fire are under investigation by the Kentucky State Police arson investigator and the state fire marshal.

Trent's body has been sent to Frankfort for an autopsy, said Rowan County Coroner John Northcutt.

At least four others lived at the trailer; Northcutt said a female fire victim was taken to St. Claire Regional Medical Center in Morehead. Her identity and condition were unknown Sunday, Northcutt said.
