LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Investigators say a fire that killed two adults and five children earlier this month in southern Kentucky burned so hot they are unable to determine its cause.

A fire spokesman and a state trooper told The Associated Press on Wednesday that arson investigators weren't able to nail down the cause of the March 9 fire in Gray because of severe damage to the house.

Brown said while the exact cause is not known, officials have concluded it was an accident.

The fire killed 27-year-old Jesse Disney; his fiancée, 22-year-old Nina Asher; and five children from 8 months to 3 years old.

Officials said all seven died from smoke inhalation.
