Woman critically injured in fire welcomed home

A happy homecoming Tuesday for a woman who's spent the past two months recovering from a fire.

Bonnie Posey had been in the hospital since April, after she was injured in a fire in Metcalfe County that also killed five members of her family.

She arrived to teary eyes and smiling faces as everyone was excited to see her.

She pulled up to a park in Barren County, anxious to see friends and family, many of whom hadn't seen her since the fire.

The fire killed Posey's three children.

Posey says the support of the people gathered at the park is helping her stay strong and continue to recover.

Posey says the three children, 1-year-old Mason, 2-year-old Chase, and 3-year-old Jaclyn remain in her heart, along with her friend, 24-year-old Melanie Harper, and 12-year-old Valissa Perry, who also died in the fire.

Posey and her husband say getting home gives them a little closure.

"I'm glad to be home with my friends and family," Bonnie Posey said. "I know I'm loved."

"Glad we're back home," Bonnie's husband, Josh Posey, said. "I'd like to thank everyone for the support that we had."

Firefighters ruled the deadly fire an accident.
