A Wayne County couple and their son died early Sunday in a fire at their mobile home in Monticello, authorities said.
Dead are Hobert Piercy, 66, Laurina Piercy, 54, and James Piercy, 36.
Kentucky State Police said in a news release that the fire occurred at Ridgewood Trailer Court; they were notified after the Monticello Fire Department was sent to the scene just before 4 a.m. and discovered the bodies after extinguishing the flames.
State police said the cause of the fire remained unknown, but foul play was not suspected.

Wayne County Coroner Forrest Hicks said no autopsies were planned because it appeared the Piercys died of smoke inhalation. He said blood tests would be conducted, however.
