DEPOY, Ky. (AP) — A country music group made up of three siblings has offered to pay for the funeral of eight children and their mother who died in a western Kentucky house fire.

Calvary Baptist Church Pastor Tim Burden told WLKY-TV (http://bit.ly/1aQAK8i ) on Saturday that The Band Perry has reached out with an offer to pay for the services for Nikki Watson and eight of her children. The Tennessee-based trio is made up of two brothers and their sister.

A posting on the Watson Family Fundraiser Facebook page Friday night said the band "has paid for the entire funeral."

Burden, a close friend of the family, led a candlelight vigil for the victims on Friday night at the church in Central City.
