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.
Initial indications suggested that they died of smoke inhalation, but the coroner’s office said autopsies should pinpoint the cause of death.
