GRAY, Ky. (AP) — Authorities were investigating the cause of a weekend house fire in the Appalachian foothills of Kentucky that killed a man, his pregnant fiancee and five children — two of whom were friends who were spending the night.
The Knox County coroner and state police have not yet identified the victims, but family members said the five children killed ranged in age from 10 months to 3 years.
Shannon Disney, a sister-in-law of one of the victims, said a relative who drove past the house at 7:45 a.m. Saturday noticed nothing unusual, but another who lives nearby saw smoke coming from it around 9 a.m.
Disney described the couple as devoted to the children, with their lives organized around bedtime and bath time. She said the woman had just gotten an ultrasound, and the couple was excited to plan for the birth, though they didn’t know yet whether it was a boy or girl.
