Two investigations sparked by house fire

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.
