One woman is dead as a result of a house fire on Sunday, April 9 in Lyon County, Kentucky.

Officers with Kentucky State Police Post 1 received a fire alarm for a residence on Lake Barkley Drive in Lyon Co., Ky just after 6 a.m. 

This call was in addition to another that KSP Post 1 received from a resident on Lake Barkley Drive, stating his neighbor’s house was on fire.
