The fire broke out around 2.30 am (local time) and spread rapidly.

Neighbors reported hearing a loud explosion before seeing flames shoot out of the house, which had become the epicenter of the fire. According to witnesses, a young man was heard screaming outside the house: “They are all dead.”

Firefighter Baker, who was relieved of his duties because of his relationship with the victims, said a total of 14 people lived in the house. One was absent due to work, while three others managed to get away in time. Harold Baker added that there were also 13 dogs in the home, but he did not know if any survived.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
