GREENVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police say they have recovered nine bodies from an early morning blaze in the western part of the state.

Trooper Stu Recke said a father and daughter who survived the blaze are at a hospital in Nashville, Tenn. He didn't know their conditions.

A relative says a couple in their 30s lived in the house with their nine children.

Recke said the adult who fled the fire about 2 a.m. CST in the Depoy community of Muhlenberg County told first responders that most of the family remained inside the house.

Investigators were working to determine the cause of the blaze.
