The Jessamine County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a house fire and a death resulting from a housefire in Jessamine County.
On Saturday around 3:00 p.m. a home off of Junebug Lane outside of Nicholasville was engulfed in flames, Jessamine County Sheriff Office Public Information Officer Kevin Peel said.
The two ongoing investigations include: one into the fire to see the cause and one into a cause of death.
The Medical Examiner is looking into the cause of death, Peel said.
“There was no body found in the house, but rather the body was found in a creek near the house,” Peel said. “There is no foul-play expected.”
KSP will assist the Jessamine County Sheriff’s Office in the investigation.
