Offers To Help Knox County Fire Victims' Families Pouring In

GRAY, Ky. (AP) - Offers to help the families of the seven victims of a deadly fire in southeastern Kentucky are pouring in.

Amy Weddle, a clerk at the J&G Market convenience store in the tiny town of Gray, said Monday she's had calls from across the country pledging money for a funeral fund she set up.

Meanwhile, inspectors Monday continued to comb through the wreckage of the house gutted in the Saturday morning blaze that killed two adults, including a pregnant woman, and five children ages 10 months to 3 years. Two of the children were friends spending the night.

A state official said it could take a while to determine the cause.

Eric Grisell, owner of Vankirk-Grisell Funeral Home in Corbin, says he is donating services to one of the families.
