Galbraith Road fire claims one life

A Texas woman is thought to have lost her life in a fire Friday night. Human remains were found in the burnt log home Saturday after the fire was contained.

According to Kentucky State Police, circumstantial evidence points them to an identification of the victim, but they will decline to make an official announcement until the state medical examiner’s office can do so with certainty.
