Citing the fact that it is the second fire at this location within the last two weeks, Corbin Police are investigating a fire that damaged the three-family home at 706 Barbourville Street Monday morning.

Firefighters said Monday’s blaze began in the kitchen area of the upstairs apartment.

Danielle Asher, who lives in the apartment with her boyfriend Scotty Herren and their young son, said she was lying on the couch when she heard something explode in the kitchen and smelled the smoke. She grabbed her son and ran outside while yelling for the family dog. However, the dog didn’t follow.
