Candlelight vigil being held for Watson family
MUHLENBERG CO., KY (WFIE) -
A candlelight prayer service is being held for the Watson family and the nine lives lost in an early morning house fire.
It's at 7 p.m. Friday at Calvary Baptist Church. That's at 605 Stringtown Road in Central City.
A mother and eight children were killed in that fire Thursday in Depoy, near Greenville.
The father and another child survived.
The victims were 36-year-old mom Nikki, 15-year-old Madison, 14-year-old Kaitlyn, 13-year-old Morgan, 9-year-old Emily, 8-year-old Samuel, 6-year-old Raegan, 4-year-old twins Mark and Nathaniel.
The survivors were 36-year-old father Chad Watson and 11-year-old Kiley Watson.
They were listed in critical but stable condition Thursday at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville.
Fire investigators say an electric baseboard heater in a bedroom appears to have ignited nearby combustible material.
