Mining Officials Investigating Perry County Rockslide

{Kentucky}...Mining officials are investigating after a large rock crashed through a mobile home in Perry County Tuesday morning, damaging the home of Orby Dean Campbell. Campbell says his daughter, her husband and their two children were inside the structure when the incident happened and were lucky to escape injury. The Division Of Mine Reclamation Enforcement, the Mine Safety and Health Administration and the Office of Surface Mining are investigating to determine the cause, but Campbell says he believes blasting at a nearby mine could be to blame.
