More than two dozen first responders helped put out the fire but they say the flames were so intense, they couldn’t even see the home when they arrived.

WJRT says Taulebee, Rodden and their two boys, 5-year-old Carter and 2-year-old Wesley, died in the fire.

Their families says Taulebee and Rodden recently moved to Michigan from Breathitt County.

Investigators are still trying to determine what caused the fire, but they don’t believe it’s suspicious.

The families of Taulebee and Rodden are asking for help with the funeral expenses. If you would like to help, click here.
