Kentucky Fire Survivor Released From Hospital

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A Kentucky man who was injured in a fire that killed his wife and eight of his children has been released from the hospital. The man's daughter -- his only surviving child-- remains hospitalized.

Vanderbilt University Medical Center officials said 11-year-old Kylie Watson is still listed in stable condition. Vanderbilt spokeswoman Paula Jones said the girl's father, 36-year-old Chad Watson, was discharged on Thursday.

The two had been hospitalized since January 30 after a fire swept through their home in the community of Depoy near Greenville, Ky. Police say the fire started when a combustible material fell against an electric heater in a bedroom overnight. The blaze killed La Rae "Nikki" Watson and eight children ages 4 to 15.
