The Wayne County Coroner has identified the victims of a deadly house fire Thursday night.

The fire broke out just before 10:30 p.m. in Monticello at a home off South Highway 1009.

ABC36 has learned that it was Douglas Walker, 60, that was pronounced dead on the scene of that fire.

The coroner said that Melvina Walker, 60, and Jaimie Elliott, 3, were also at the home when the fire broke out. They were both taken to the Wayne County Hospital where they later died.

Investigators still have not determined a cause of the fire.

The coroner said that the three victims will be transported to the State Medical Examiner's Office in Frankfort for autopsies.
