5 children, 2 adults die in Kentucky house fire

(Continued)

"Hey, there's babies in there, there's babies in there!" Cima screamed to firefighters, his wife, Laura, who also was at the scene, told the Associated Press.

Disney, Asher and her children had occupied the rental home for about two months, according to Ray Disney. He said the couple was engaged to be married and were excited about Asher's pregnancy.

It was the second family house fire tragedy to strike southeast Kentucky this year. On Jan. 9, about 80 miles away in Pike County, a father and four of his children died in an early morning blaze. Officials said a space heater likely caused the fire.

Gray, the scene of Saturday's fire, is located in Knox County five miles west of Corbin, Ky., and midway between Lexington, Ky., and Knoxville, Tenn.
