LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky State police are investigating a death and fire in Columbia, Ky.

Officials say they were contacted Sunday afternoon after a body had been located in the ruins of a house on Watson Road in Columbia.

They quickly realized that was the same location that the Adair County and Columbia Fire Department responded to Saturday on reports of a vehicle fire.

The owner of the home didn't go back inside the burnt structure until Sunday afternoon, which is when he or she found the body.

The body was sent to the Kentucky State Medical Examiner's Office for autopsy and identification.

KSP is still investigating.
