We’re told an elderly couple lives in the home and a woman who lives there called 911 to report the fire and said someone might be trapped inside.

Fire officials say Hallmark was found inside the house and pronounced dead at the scene by the coroner. The woman who reported the fire was taken to the hospital, but there’s no word yet on her condition.

The fire is now under investigation by Kentucky State Police and the State Fire Marshal.
