GREENVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Funeral services have been set for a mother and eight of her children who died in a fire in western Kentucky last week.
Calvary Baptist Church pastor Tim Burden said the funeral is set for 2 p.m. CST Saturday at Felix E. Martin Jr. Hall at Muhlenberg County High School in Greenville.
He says country music trio The Band Perry has offered to pay for the funeral for Nikki Watson and the children and is also covering some lodging for family while the survivors, husband and father, Chad Watson, and 11-year-old daughter, Kylie, are hospitalized.
Burden said an Owensboro homebuilder has offered to build a new home for the Watsons.
Burden said the father and daughter are making progress.
Vanderbilt University Medical Center spokeswoman, Jennifer Wetzel, said both remain in critical but stable condition.
