The fire alarm sounded early Saturday morning on Highway 210 to a residential structure fire just outside of Campbellsville.

The fire was reported by a passerby, fire personnel arrived and were met by very heavy fire conditions. Investigators pronounced Vivian Christie, 81 of Campbellsville, deceased.

Through the Preliminary Investigation, it appears Ms. Christie died as a result of smoke inhalation and thermal injuries sustained in the fire.

The House was a total loss, the body of Vivian Christie was transported to the Kentucky State Medical Examiners Office for an autopsy, no foul play is suspected.

The cause of the fire and death remain under investigation by the Taylor County Coroner's Office, Taylor County Sheriff's Office and the Taylor County Fire Department.
