An overnight fire in Maysville that killed five people was accidental, Maysville Fire Chief Kevin Doyle said. The fire broke out in the 200 block of West Second Street at about 1 a.m. Tuesday. The fire appeared to start on the back porch of a row house and spread quickly, killing a woman, three of her children and a neighbor, authorities said. A neighbor who survived said the mother went back inside to try to save her kids while flames were shooting out of the building.
