Madison Co. Fire Deaths Result of Smoke Inhalation

By  | 

RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky State Police say autopsies have determined that the deaths of three people in a Madison County fire were the result of smoke inhalation.

But police say the autopsies performed Sunday at the state medical examiner's office in Frankfort could not positively identify the three adults who died. Police said they will continue to investigate to try to determine the identities.

Investigators say they have ruled the fire accidental and believe a wood stove inside the house may have been the cause.

Madison County firefighters responded to the fire on Oakley Wells Road just before midnight Friday, and the bodies were recovered Saturday.
