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.
