2 girls, mom among 4 dead in NE Ohio house fire

WARREN, Ohio (AP) -- Firefighters say a weekend fire at a northeast Ohio home killed two girls, their mother and a man who was staying with them.

No one escaped the blaze early Saturday in Warren, about 50 miles southeast of Cleveland. No smoke detectors were found in the home. The cause remains under investigation.

Assistant Fire Chief Dan Suttles said Monday the 32-year-old man and 38-year-old woman were found in one bedroom upstairs. The 9- and 12-year-old girls were found in another bedroom.

Suttles says the firefighters who responded to the scene make up the same crew that responded to a June house fire that killed six people, including four children. That blaze was blamed on a smoldering charcoal grill.

He says the firefighters will have access to counseling.
