UPDATE: Child Who Survived Deadly Fire Recuperating; 9 Killed

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A girl who escaped a western Kentucky house fire that killed her mother and eight siblings is communicating with her hospital nurses.
    
Pastor Tim Burden said Friday that 11-year-old Kylie Watson has written "I'm hungry" on a dry erase board. Burden says Kylie's father, Chad Watson, is also making progress at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
    
Eight of Chad Watson's children and his wife, Nikki, died in a house fire in rural Muhlenberg County early Thursday morning. Investigators say a combustible material made contact with a baseboard heater.
    
Burden, a close friend of the family and the pastor at Calvary Baptist Church in Central City, says the church is holding a candlelight vigil Friday evening.
    
The father and daughter were both listed in critical condition Friday morning.
