An arson investigation is underway in Muhlenberg County's Powderly, Kentucky, after firefighters found a mobile home burned to the ground.

The Greenville Fire Department says it was notified of a fire on Whippoorwill Hill in Powderly on Sunday morning just before 11:00 a.m. The fire department was told that a house trailer had burned sometime in the early morning hours.

When firefighters arrived, they found a 15x40 house trailer completely on the ground, with a small amount of fire and smoke still visible.

The fire department says multiple other authorities were called to the scene to begin investigating, which led to neighbors being interviewed and security camera footage from the area being reviewed.

According to GFD, the fire has been ruled as an arson, but no arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information on the fire can call Central Dispatch at (270) 338-2000 or the Greenville Fire Department at (270) 338-3305.

A line of sustained to heavy rainfall is expected to push northeastward across the Tri-State between the hours 7AM and 11AM Thursday morning; be sure to pack an umbrella early tomorrow, as that timeline will fall during your morning commute Thursday. After the initial line of rain exits east of the region, we'll continue to see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Thursday afternoon and evening. Unfortunately, the same can be said for our Friday - lower pressure slowly spinning eastward will stall the rainfall and prolong our precip chances as we head into Friday afternoon and evening. It looks as though those chances of rainfall throughout our Friday will be sporadic at best and shouldn't lead to any significant disruption to those Friday night football games.
