LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Officials are investigating a homicide after a woman was found dead in a burning home in Bullitt County on Wednesday night.

The Bullitt County Sheriff's Office was dispatched to the home in the 200 block of Audubon Drive just after 9:30 p.m. Wednesday.

"When it first started, we were sitting the front porch and we smelled an odd odor," neighbor Pamela Hester said. 

Upon arrival, the home was fully engulfed, and the body of a female was found inside.

"I'm surprised. I thought it was an accident until later when I found out otherwise," neighbor Allen Kempe said.

Kempe says investigators told her the woman had been shot.

No further information is known, but officials are investigating it as a homicide and an arson.

Investigators promise to release more information Friday.
