Kentucky State Police say nine bodies have been recovered from a Muhlenberg County house, destroyed by an early morning fire. Trooper Stu Recke says the father, 36-year old Chad Watson and an 11-year old daughter survived, and are being treated for severe burns at Vanderbilt Medical Center. Recke says 9 kids, ranging in age from 4 to 15 lived there. He described the region near Greenville as "a rural area where everybody knows everybody." The house is in a small neighborhood of single-family dwellings, trailers and farmland.
