Letcher County Home Burns to the ground

Firefighters were at one Letcher County home twice on Thursday. They were called to a home in the Kings Creek community in Whitesburg.

Responders with the Kings Creek Volunteer Fire department arrived at the home on Highway 160 Thursday morning to the blaze.

But only a short time after crew members left the scene, they were called back.

No one was hurt..

Fire fighters on scene say they do not know exactly what caused the fire, but family members say they are already planning fundraising efforts to help recoup some of the damages.

Firefighters with the Sandlick Fire Department were also at the scene for most of the day.
