Overnight house fire in Ohio kills 2 adults, 2 children

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — An overnight house fire has killed two adults and two young girls in Akron, Ohio.

Multiple media reports say the fire broke out about 1:30 a.m. Saturday when a caller reported people were trapped inside the house.

Media reports say one 12-year-old girl was rescued and a woman escaped by jumping from an attic window in the three-story house.

City spokeswoman Ellen Lander says the adults were a man and woman and the girls were about 7 or 8 years old.

The children attended Akron city schools. District spokesman Mark Williamson said counselors will be available at their schools next week.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
