A small town in Kentucky is mourning the loss of a woman and two children who perished in a house fire Thursday.
Eryan Toogood, 27, her daughter, Haisley Heath, 6, and another 6-year-old girl were killed in the fire in Lebanon Junction, according to WLKY.
Authorities have not released the name of one victim as of Friday.
Fire Chief Adam Heath told reporters: “It is a tight-knit community, but it’s devastating, you know for us as first responders, as well as the community, it takes a toll on us and them.”
In a town of around 1700 people, Mayor Larry Dangerfield says it’s not hard to know a face.
“Fortunately enough the town is small enough that you know just about everybody, unfortunately, it hurts everybody,” Dangerfield said.
