WARREN, Ohio (AP) — A man, woman and two girls died Saturday in a house fire in northeast Ohio, fire officials said.
Warren fire Chief Ken Nussle tells the Tribune Chronicle that one of the first 911 calls came from a woman inside the house. Flames had engulfed the two-story house by the time firefighters arrived around 3:30 a.m.
No one was able to escape the wood-framed home, Assistant Fire Chief Dan Suttles said.
He said the man was identified as 32-year-old Edtwan Kimble but that the coroner had not positively identified the other victims by Saturday afternoon. He said Kimble had been staying at the house.
Nussle said firefighters had arrived about two or three minutes after receiving the 911 call. He suspects high winds may have caused the flames to spread quickly.
