Jupiterimages/Thinkstock(BOWLING GREEN, Ky.) — Authorities say 19 children, ranging in age from eight months to 14 years, were left alone with nine dogs, little food and no air-conditioning for almost a week in a sweltering three-bedroom home in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

Jackie Farah, who officials say is the mother of some of the children rescued from the home, has been jailed on 14 counts of criminal abuse in the first degree and five counts of wanton endangerment in the first degree.

The kids were examined and released to social services.

Police are still searching for other adults who may be responsible.
