Five people, including four children died in an early morning house fire in Pike County.

WCHS out of Charleston, West Virginia said the fire began in the community of Jonancy around 2:30 a.m. The five fire victims have been identified as William Henry Wilfong and his four children Dakota, Tyler, Cheyenne, and Emily. The children's grandfather, James Tucker, said the kids ranged in age from 6 months to 7 years old. He said their mother, Tammie Tucker Wilfong, was injured in the fire, but was able to escape from the fire and run to his home to call 911. Wilfong was taken to UK Hospital where she is listed in critical condition.

James Tucker said the one-story home the family lived in did not have a lot of heat sources, and they depended on an electric space heater. Fire officials have not yet released a cause of the blaze.
