Five are dead in a Kentucky blaze. The fiery inferno claimed the lives of one adult and four children. The incident took place overnight in eastern Kentucky after flames broke out in the small home shortly after 2:30 a.m. According to a Jan. 9, 2013 report by ABC News, Pike County Coroner Russell Roberts confirmed the deaths to The Associated Press, but he did not supply the ages of the five victims.
According to Kentucky State Police Trooper Tony Watts, one victim of the Kentucky blaze that killed five was transported to the University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington with injuries sustained in the blaze.
The five dead in the Kentucky blaze were residents of the Jonancy community of Pike County, a rural area three hours southeast of Lexington.
As of Wednesday morning, the bodies of the five dead in the Kentucky blaze were still trapped inside the smouldering home, reported Washington Post. The remains of the structure were too hot for firefighters to enter, and they are waiting for the structure to cool before they begin their investigation and retrieve the bodies of the deceased.
