Funeral set for children who died in Woodford fire

Funeral arrangements have been completed for two children who died in a house fire Friday morning in Woodford County.

Visitation for Ronnie Jo "Jo-Jo" Graham, 3, and Lidia Graham, 7, will be 3 to 7 p.m. Tuesday at Blackburn & Ward Funeral Home, Versailles. Services will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday at the funeral home. Burial will be in Rose Crest Cemetery in Versailles.

Meanwhile, the cause of Friday's fire has not been determined.

The fire started at midnight in the rear of a two-story, four-bedroom house at 2204 Cummins Ferry Road in southern Woodford County.

Investigators were at the scene Friday, but an investigator wants to take another look at the house, said Richard Peddicord of the state fire marshal's office. It's not clear when that will happen.

"The building's really structurally unsound, and the weather didn't help it this weekend," Peddicord said.

Two other children were in the house at the time of the fire. Donnie Graham, 5, and Robert Sutherland, 14, were able to escape from the burning building.

Donnie Graham is in fair condition at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital in Lexington, a spokeswoman said.

Robert was treated and released Friday.
