I'm a retired SGM that lived in the middle house on 8th Avenue. My daughter who was seventeen and attended the high school kept telling me our house was haunted. I never believed her and thought she was lying for attention. One night (she slept in the basement) she woke me up screaming. I ran down the stairs from the bedroom on the second floor through the living room, dining room, and kitchen to the basement door. It was closed. I grabbed the knob, but I recoiled in pain. The doorknob was hot, but when I grabbed it again it wasn't. I was really upset, and my daughter was still screaming.
I got down there, and she was pointing towards the back wall. I saw nothing. I told her to get back in bed and shut off the light. The next morning she hadn't gotten up for breakfast. I was mad. I stormed down the stairs, and she was out cold on the bed with an empty bottle of Tylenol beside her. I got to her just in time. We got her to Ireland. They pumped her stomach and flew her to Jewish Hospital in Louisville. She was alive, but never regained consciousness. We buried her up in Louisville.
After taking leave for thirty days, my wife left me. I would go to work, but I never did anything. I would go in the basement and drink. One night I drank myself into a blackout. I woke up to a touch on my arm. It was my daughter. She spoke, but no words came out. She was surrounded by lights - like fireflies, but there were no bugs. She looked left and right, and suddenly a smell of burnt seared flesh assaulted the basement. She slapped at hands that I didn't see. She appeared as if she was being dragged into the back wall and screamed soundlessly for me. Suddenly she caught fire and was gone.
I got up to catch my daughter, but I was so drunk I fell and hit my head on the floor. The next day I decided to retire. I left the house and haven't been sober since. I got cancer in everywhere you can get cancer. I still drink myself to sleep every night. I just wanted to share my story and hope God shows mercy on the family that lives in that house now.

Comment by B.A.: I also lived on 8th ave and never saw anything but I would hear people ''talking'' anytime I was in the basement even when both my house was empty and the adjoining house was vacant. It always sounded like someone talking in the next room but I could never make out the words except it sounded like they were in a great deal of pain.
I also would smell the ''burnt pork'' smell in the basement at night. I always felt like the house and the whole street was under a blanket of dread. My family only lived there for a year and we were all glad when we left.
One of the neighbors died in the basement of one of the middle houses but I don't know if it is anyone from the other a hard experiences about 8th ave in Ft. Knox.
