Nine Dead in House Fire
GREENVILLE, Kentucky (WKRC) -- A morning fire in Greenville, Kentucky claimed the lives of a mother and eight of her nine children.
The first responders were there in a matter of moments and when they arrived the house was fully engulfed. A couple in their 30s lived in the home with their nine children. The eight children who died were between the ages of 4 and 15.
The father and an 11-year-old daughter were pulled from the fire and taken to Vanderbilt hospital in Nashville. Their conditions have yet to be released. Investigators say the fire started when combustible materials were placed too close to an electric heater in a bedroom.
