A house fire in rural southeaster Kentucky has claimed the lives of seven people, including five children.

Knox County Coroner Mike Blevins said he wouldn't be releasing the names of the victims until positive identification is made. A mother and three of her children died, but there were two other children not part of the family that are thought to be among the victims, and that is probably the reason for the delay in the release of the names - to ensure they are identified correctly.

No news on who the man that perished was yet either. While it is likely it is known who it is, the fire would have caused obvious problems in confirming the identity as well.

There is no official announcement as to the cause of the fire yet, which took place near Corbin in the Gray community. That's located about halfway between Knoxville, Tennessee and Lexington, Kentucky.

The fire remains under investigation officials said.


Dead in the tragic fire are Nina Asher, 22, Jesse Disney, her fiance, Asher’s three children: identified as William, 3; Camden, 2; and Abigail, almost 1. Asher was also reportedly three months pregnant at the time of her death.

The other two children were girls of a friend that were spending a sleepover at the home when it caught fire. They have yet to be identified.
