4 kids, 2 adults killed in Indiana house fire

Posted at 8:56 AM, Nov 28, 2018

Six people, including four children, died early Wednesday morning in a house fire near Logansport, Indiana.

The fire started at about 1:45 Wednesday morning, in the 4300 block of Pottawatomie Road. Deputies who arrived said they climbed on the roof and broke windows to try and get inside, but the flames were too intense, Logansport Pharos-Tribune reporter Mitchell Kirk said.

A man and a woman made it out of the house and were hospitalized. The cause of the fire is still under investigation. The Indiana Fire Marshal's Office has assigned three investigators to the site. 

The people who died have not been identified.

The Logansport Fire Department went on a smoke detector blitz last month, after two children were killed in a September house fire. It is unclear if the house in Wednesday's fire was part of that blitz. It's technically 3-4 miles outside of Logansport, Cass County Deputy Nick Bowyer said.
