Bourbon boy is 'smoke detective'

BOURBON — A house fire on Elm Street in Bourbon could have been worse if 6-year-old Jayden Overmyer hadn't discovered smoke coming out of the crawl space of his house.

He told his mother, 911 was called and the fire extinguished.

The fire was electrical in nature, according to Bourbon Fire Chief Brandon Chapman.

Jayden's story is featured in today's Pilot News.
