Autopsies are scheduled Monday for three people who died early Sunday morning when a mobile home caught fire in McCreary County.
The McCreary County coroner’s office identified the victims as David Perkins, 52, his wife, Lisa Young, 48, and their 2-year-old granddaughter Shaelynn N. Crabtree. Perkins and Young were married, but she had retained her last name, according to the coroner.
The fire occurred about 5:30 a.m. Monday on Sycamore Trail in Whitley City, authorities said.
Firefighters extinguished the flames and found the three victims inside the structure.
