GRAY, Ky. (AP) — Family members say the uncle of one of the seven victims of a rural Kentucky house fire desperately tried to save them from the burning home.

Laura Cima said Sunday that her husband, Gino, raced to the house Saturday when he heard about the fire, but was too late to save the two adults and five children inside.

Laura Cima said the bodies of the two adults were found just inside a side door, and Gino dragged them out while yelling, "There's babies in there!" to firefighters outside.

Officials have not identified the victims, but family members say the five children killed ranged in age from 10 months to 3 years. They also say the woman killed was three months pregnant. The seventh victim was a man.
