HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Authorities say a man has died and a woman was critically injured in a Kentucky apartment fire.

Kentucky State Police said in a statement that fire crews responded Tuesday morning to the blaze at the Woodland Heights apartment complex in Hopkinsville.

Police said 25-year-old David Keys of New Albany, Indiana, died at the scene from smoke inhalation and 22-year-old Andra Pool of Hopkinsville was flown to a hospital, where she is in critical condition.

The Kentucky New Era reported the fire was contained to a kitchen but caused smoke damage throughout the apartment.

State fire officials are investigating, but say foul play isn't suspected.
