Fire at U.S. day care centre kills 5 children

According to the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services website Harris Family Day Care provides pickup service to and from the child's home and operates 24 hours a day, the center also has a recent compliance certificate.

Four of the victims were siblings who were being cared for at the care center, the fire chief said.

A morning fire in Pennsylvania killed five children and sent another person to the hospital, authorities said. The homeowner's child was also killed, the police chief said.

Chief Guy Santone of the Erie Fire Department says arson has not yet been ruled out as a possibility but said that "it's too early to draw that conclusion".

"So we are all at a loss, trying to figure out how this happened", Lockett-Slupski said. The owner was airlifted to a Pittsburgh hospital, officials said. A neighbor is said to have been injured as well.

"And she drove herself to the hospital, and on the way to the hospital, she crashed her vehicle", he was quoted as saying.

In thIs photo released by the Erie Fire department, firefighters work to put out a house fire in Erie, Pennsylvania early in the morning on Aug 11, 2019.

The Erie Regional Chamber and Growth Partnership lists a childcare centre at the fire address. Investigators remained at the scene Sunday afternoon, with the house blocked off with yellow caution tape and an Erie police officer stationed outside.

According to Erie News Now, the fire broke out around 1:15 a.m. on Sunday.

An electric overload is suspected of starting the fire, but the exact cause remains under investigation. It is unclear if Harris was the woman injured in the blaze as authorities did not identify her. "I will make sure that they are turned closed when not in use".
