A fire in McKeesport, Pennsylvania, which began before 7 a.m. local time killed two adults and four children and injured another adult.
The adults who perished in the blaze were the mother and grandfather of the four children. The children’s father was injured but escaped from the home. Authorities say that the grandfather was in a wheelchair and unable to get out of the burning structure.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
This incident follows another fire in McKeesport in June. The house was vacant, and the cause of the fire is yet to be determined.
