Muhlenberg County fire victim released from hospital

MUHLENBERG COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - A man injured in a fire that killed his wife, and eight of his children, was released from the hospital Thursday night.

The pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in Central City says Chad Watson was released from Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville, two weeks after the fire.

His daughter, Kylie, 11, is still in the hospital but should be released in a few days.

The fire destroyed the Watsons' home in Muhlenberg County. Firefighters think an electric baseboard heater caused it.
