Married couple die in Knott Co. house fire

A married couple in Knott County lost their lives when their home went up in flames Saturday morning.The couple's family nearby tried to help them out of the burning home, but the fire was too far gone. Neighbors on Hales Branch Road in Red Fox jumped into action when they saw flames coming from one home. They banged on windows, poured water, and screamed for help as the house burned, trying to wake the sleeping couple. The cause of the fire is unknown at this time, but officials do not suspect foul play. Police officials say they are not positively identifying the two bodies until autopsies are completed.
