Kentucky State Police, the State Fire Marshal's Office, and the Calloway County Coroner's Office continue to investigate the explosion and fire at 669 Cook Store Trail, near Coldwater, in Calloway County. Police say the single story home was leveled in an explosion that severely injured four adults and killed one man Saturday just after 7:00 pm.
Story was pronounced dead at the scene by Calloway County Coroner Rick Harris. One victim, Parker, was airlifted from the scene to Vanderbilt, while the other three of the surviving victims were initially transported to Murray-Calloway County Hospital, before being transported to Vanderbilt.
The investigation, thus far, according to KSP, has centered on a liquid propane wall heater and potential LP gas leak as the cause of the explosion and resulting fire. The home was a total loss.
The Kentucky State Police were assisted at the scene by the State Fire Marshal's Office, Calloway County Sheriff's Department, Calloway County Fire/Rescue, Farmington Fire Department, Murray/Calloway County EMS, and the Calloway County Coroner's Office.
