For second time in less than a week, multiple fatalities in Union County fire

Two men, a father and son, died in a fire in Western Kentucky Tuesday morning.

The bodies of Charles Shockley, 68, and Jesse Shockley, 41, were found inside a residence that was destroyed by fire on Adams Street in Uniontown, state police said.

The fire was reported about 5:30 a.m.

State police said the cause of the fire is not yet known, but it does not appear suspicious. The investigation is ongoing.

It is the second time in less than a week that a fire has killed multiple people in Union County.

On Friday, four people — a toddler and his parents and grandmother — died in a mobile home fire outside Morganfield.
