On February 12, 2024, the Corydon Civil Defense Fire and Rescue, Smith Mills Fire Department, Henderson City County Rescue Squad, Deaconess EMS, and Henderson County Sheriff’s Department were dispatched to a house fire on Main Street with reports of a woman trapped. At 1123, first arriving units were met with fire showing, and a male subject was found with burns. He was treated by Deaconess EMS, and airlifted to a nearby burn center. Due to strong winds and the structure starting to collapse, crews were forced to go into a defensive attack. At approximately 1231 hours the body of a deceased female subject was located, removed from the structure, and turned over to the Henderson County Coroner’s Office. The cause of the fire was under investigation by the Corydon Civil Defense and the Kentucky State Fire Marshalls Office.
