Dec 5, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. - An improperly disposed of cigarette is to blame for a house fire in South Lexington that claimed the lives of three people early Wednesday.  Battalion Chief Ed Davis says investigators from the fire department’s arson division, Lexington Police, and the State Fire Marshal’s office made that determination after combing the charred remains of the single story ranch-style home on Buckingham Lane.
