MOREHEAD, Ky. (AP) - A house fire in eastern Kentucky has killed a child.
WAVE-TV in Louisville reported a family of six lived in the Rowan County home where fire broke out.
A neighbor of the family said the mother and three small girls ran to her house, begging for help Thursday morning. The station reported the children had burns on their arms and a boy was missing.
The coroner confirmed a child died in the fire.
Five members of the family were taken to St. Clair Medical Regional Center in Morehead. Four were transferred to University of Kentucky Medical Center and one was taken to Shriners Hospital in Cincinnati.
The names of the victims were not immediately released.
