LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB/AP) -- Officials in eastern Kentucky say a space heater may be to blame for a fire that killed a father and four children
The four children are ages five, four, two, and six months. Their mother, the lone survivor, has serious burns.
Fire officials say the fire started just after 2:30am Wednesday in the Jonancy community in Pike County.
Pike County Emergency Management Coordinator Doug Tackett said the fire happened in a rural area of Pike County, about three hours southeast of Lexington in the eastern coal field area of the state. Tackett said three fire departments responded to the fire, there were no evacuations within the neighborhood.
No officials could recall a similar deadly blaze in Kentucky since 10 people, including six children, were killed in a house fire in Bardstown in February 2007.
"It's probably been the worst we've had in this area in a long, long time," Watts said.
County Judge-Executive spokesman Brandon Roberts said there's been no similar fatal fire in the county in recent years.
"I can't remember a whole family perishing in a fire in my lifetime," Roberts said. "It's just, 'Oh God.'"
