Investigators Looking Into Deadly Fire

We're learning more about a man who died after fire destroyed his home in eastern Kentucky.

49-year-old Steven Hollon was a husband and father of two. He was found dead inside his Wolfe County home in the Rogers community.

Investigators say the home was so badly damaged, they don't expect to be able to determine the cause.
A neighbor says smoke from the fire was so intense, she could see it on her way home.

"We had a mother sitting here, and she was watching the house burn, knowing that her husband was inside and we had two kids standing here watching, knowing that their dad was in there," said Connie Sargent.

The Red Cross is gathering clothes for the Hollon family.

    I work with the oldest son, and both boys are often in the store where I work and I feel for the family. The store is taking donations. This was totally tragic and everyones thoughts and prayers are with the family.

    i know the family my self. it is very hard for us wcms. jesse was their youngest son and my best friend and you don't think that it could happen to somebody so nice. i have spent many of nights at that house camping hunting doing the things that we all do. and it kills my hart to see something so horrific and to know that we cant do that there ever again. Both the brothers we talented dirt bike racers. just last weekend they came back from a race where he finished 5th, and was going to state. but now they cant because the 4 bikes were destroyed. on behalf of every one wcms we are sorry for your loss of Steve.
