LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky State Police have identified the two adults and five children killed in a house fire in southern Kentucky over the weekend.

Trooper Shane Jacobs says those who died Saturday in the blaze in the community of Gray included 27-year-old Jesse Disney; his fiancé, 22-year-old Nina Asher; her three children, 3-year-old William Gray Jr.; 2-year-old Camden Gray; and 8-month-old Abigail Gray; and two family friends, 2-year-old Paiten Cox and 2-year-old Brielle Cox.

Investigators were trying to pinpoint the cause of the fire, which consumed the single-story home. Investigators have said it could take some time before the cause is determined.

Gray is a few miles outside Corbin, a city of about 7,000 in the foothills of Appalachia near the Daniel Boone National Forest and the borders of Tennessee and Virginia.
