ERLANGER, Ky. — A man is dead after a fire broke out in an Erlanger home on Saturday night.

Charlie Loudermilk, a spokesperson for Erlanger Police, said police were called to the 1900 block of Bullock Pen Rd. around 8:50 p.m. Saturday night for a building on fire. When they arrived, the home was fully engulfed in flames, Loudermilk said.

Erlanger and Covington Fire Departments worked to extinguish the fire. Once it was out, Loudermilk said they discovered 60-year-old Chet Cason dead inside the home.

The house is a complete loss, police said.

Officials have not determined a possible cause for the fire, but Loudermilk said they don't currently suspect foul play. The fire remains under investigation.
