BRACKEN COUNTY, KY (WAVE) – A fatal house fire in Northern Kentucky claimed the lives of 5 family members Saturday morning.

Investigators said the fire started about 3:45 in Brooksville in Bracken County.

It appears a mother and her four children, ages 6 to 16, were inside the home. Two people were taken to University of Cincinnati hospital.

Crews are still trying to determine the cause of the fire.

The intense flames melted the siding on the home across the street and destroyed a garage next door. A neighbor said the father wanted to go back inside for this family, but it was too late.
