Vigils Held For Fire Victims

Friday marked the anniversary of a deadly fire that claimed the lives of ten family members.

Two vigils were held in Bardstown Friday morning in honor of the victims. One was held where the home burned at the exact time of the fire. The other vigil was held hours later at the cemetery where all ten victims were buried.

It's been two years since six children and four adults died in the fire. Four people survived.

Investigators say a cigarette sparked that fire.

The emergency response report shows that the adults in the home had elevated blood alcohol levels, which impaired their ability to get themselves or anyone else out of the house.
