An early Thursday morning house fire in Harrison has claimed the life of an unidentified individual. According to KYTV/KSPR, the fire appears to be accidental, but the cause is being investigated.

Fire personnel responded around 2 a.m. Thursday to the 700 block of North Maple Street. A fire department spokesperson says crews were able to quickly extinguish the majority of the fire, but various sections of the rear of the building concealed the fire within the walls, floors and ceilings. Investigators state the fire appeared to have started in the utility room.

Firefighters searched the residence and located the deceased person in the back. An autopsy is pending to identify the victim and determine the cause of death.
