Firefighter was dad to 3 children killed in day care blaze

It was unclear early on Monday whether the fifth child belonged to the family that lived in the house.

The owner of the day care was flown to the the University of Pittsburgh Medical Centre for treatment, Mr Santone said. Authorities say an early morning fire in northwestern Pennsylvania claimed the lives of multiple children and sent another person to the hospital. "Mr and Mrs Luther M Jones".

Fire official: Only working detector was in the attic; David Lee Miller has the details.

Detectives are working to determine whether any of the victims were staying at the day care, Erie Police Chief Dan Spizarny told the Erie Times-News.

Valerie Lockett-Slupski said that four of her grandchildren died in the fire.

Lawrence Park Fire Department was asked to assist in handling other calls while the Erie Fire Department battled the fire, WSEE-TV reported.

He said firefighters arrived on the scene about 25 minutes later, and found flames "coming out of all the windows on the first floor, and reports were in that there were children trapped on the second floor". He said the blaze appeared to have started in the living room area on the first floor.

The Erie Regional Chamber and Growth Partnership, a non-profit, lists the address of the home as the Harris Family Daycare.
