      The State Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating a house fire that occurred Monday near Mt. Washington. The blaze severely burned its sole occupant.


    Deputy State Fire Marshal Harry Rucker responded to the scene Monday afternoon. The victim, an elderly man, was taken to University Hospital in Louisville.


     The intense fire left the frame house unstable, Rucker said. He will be joined by Deputy Fire Marshal Chris Crawford today in continuing the on-site investigation to determine the fire’s cause and origin.
