Ky. fire survivors improving

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The conditions of a father and daughter who were the only survivors in a Kentucky house fire that killed nine family members have been upgraded.

Vanderbilt University Medical Center officials said Monday that 36-year-old Chad Watson and his 11-year-old daughter, Kylie, are both in stable condition. Hospital spokesman Craig Boerner said the two had been in critical but stable condition since they arrived on Jan. 30 but were upgraded over the weekend.

Police say the fire started when a combustible material fell against an electric heater in a bedroom overnight in the home in the community of Depoy near Greenville, Ky. The blaze killed La Rae "Nikki" Watson and eight of her children, ages 4 to 15.

The funeral for the nine family members was held Saturday.
