     Kentucky State Police say seven people, five of which were small children, all died in an early morning house fire Saturday in the Gray community of Knox County.

     Investigators have not yet released the names of the victims pending autopsy results.

    Witnesses say they saw flames coming from the home on Sam Parker Dr. a little after 9am.

    Family of the victims says three of the children belonged to the woman who was killed in the fire. The two other children were over for a 'slumber party.'

     Firefighters remained on the scene until the fire was put on around 1pm.

     Investigators say they do not yet know the cause of the fire, but say they don't suspect foul play.

     Police say it could be a few more months before the cause of the fire is determined.
