Authorities recovered six bodies including those of four children Wednesday from the rubble of a burned-out northern Indiana home, police said. The victims of the fire outside Logansport included a 25-year-old woman and her three children, two daughters ages 3 and 1, and a 3-month-old son, Indiana Police said.
The other victims were a 42-year-old man and his 10-year-old daughter. The man’s wife and his adult son survived the fire and were taken to a local hospital. Neighbours reported the fire about 2 a.m. Wednesday at the rural home about 70 miles (115 kilometres) north of Indianapolis.
The house was largely engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived, preventing any rescue attempts. The building’s roof collapsed after the fire gutted most of the interior of the two-story, wood-frame house.
