NASHVILLE, Tennessee (Reuters) - Nine members of a rural Kentucky family, including eight children, died on Thursday in an early morning house fire that critically injured two other family members, officials said.
The children's father, Chad Watson, 36, a Baptist minister, suffered severe burns as he tried three times to save his children and wife, Nikki, also 36, according to his cousin, Adam Brown. The house was located in rural Muhlenberg County, about 130 miles from Louisville.
