The community of Jonancy, Kentucky is coming together following a house fire that took the lives of four children and one adult.
Neighbors provided food for the family members and made a make-shift memorial at the scene.
William Henry Wilfong was killed along with his four children in the blaze that broke out early Wednesday morning on Elswick Branch Road in the Pike County community of Jonancy near the Virginia border. James Tucker, the grandfather of the four children, told Eyewitness News their names were Dakota, Tyler, Cheyenne and Emily. Their ages ranged from six months to 5 years.
