COLD SPRING, Ky. (AP) - Fire officials in northern Kentucky say two people were killed when a fast moving fire tore through a home.

Central Campbell County Fire Chief Jerry Sandfoss says Robert and Sandy Duve were found in the second floor bedroom of their home in Cold Spring Friday morning.

Sandfoss told The Kentucky Enquirer (https:// cin.ci/1f6nqwg) that it appears the couple became trapped by the blaze.

They were living with their grandson, who jumped 8 feet down to safety from a second story deck on the side of the house.

The fire was fast moving, Sandfoss said; 35 firefighters arrived within five minutes, but the four-alarm blaze was already heavily involved.

The house is a total loss. Neither the damage estimate nor cause were released.
