A family of four was tragically killed in a house fire in Hardin County on Sunday morning.

The blaze started around 1:20 a.m. at a home in the 8400 block of Highway 203, which is in Savannah, Tennessee.

The Hardin County Fire Chief Melvin Martin told News 4 that a mother, father, and two children-- ages three and 9-- died in the fire.

According to WOPC Radio, the parents have been identified as Jamie and Robyn Franks, and the children were named Brody and Josie.

A GoFundMe account has been set up to help the family pay for funeral expenses.

Officials believe this was an accidental fire; however, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and the fire marshal are investigating.
