Kentucky house fire leaves 2 adults, 5 children dead

Posted:

GRAY, Ky. (AP) - Two adults and five children are dead after a fire at a house in rural southeastern Kentucky.
 
Knox County Coroner Mike Blevins says the adult victims found inside the ranch-style home were a woman and her boyfriend.  He says the woman was the mother of three of the children who died, while two other children were from another family.
 
Further details about their identities were being withheld until relatives are notified.
 
Blevins says the remains have been sent to Frankfort for autopsies, which are likely to take place on Tuesday.
 
Blevins and Kentucky State Police say the cause of Saturday's blaze in the Gray community near Corbin is still under investigation. Arson investigators are at the scene, but officials say no foul play is suspected.
