GRAY, Kentucky–Fire erupted Saturday at a rural Kentucky home, killing two adults and five children inside, authorities said.

County Coroner Mike Blevins said the adult victims found inside the ranch-style home were a woman and her boyfriend. The woman was the mother of three of the children who died, while two other children were from another family, he said.

Further details about their identities were being withheld until relatives were notified.

The remains were sent for autopsies, which were likely to take place on Tuesday, Blevins said.

Blevins and state police said the cause of the blaze was still under investigation. Arson investigators were at the scene, but officials said no foul play was suspected.
