LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky State Police say smoke inhalation killed a couple and five children — including two friends spending the night — in a house fire over the weekend.

Trooper Shane Jacobs released the cause of death Tuesday morning for those who died Saturday in the blaze in the southern Kentucky community of Gray.

Jacobs says those who died were 27-year-old Jesse Disney; his fianceé, 22-year-old Nina Asher; her three children, 3-year-old William Gray Jr.; 2-year-old Camden Gray; and 8-month-old Abigail Gray; and two family friends, 2-year-old Paiten Cox and 2-year-old Brielle Cox.

Investigators have said it could take some time before the cause is determined.

Gray is a few miles outside Corbin, a city of about 7,000 in the foothills of Appalachia near the Daniel Boone National Forest.
