WASHINGTON COURT HOUSE, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio fire marshal’s spokesman says four bodies have been pulled from a burned-out Ohio home where three children were visiting their grandmother.

The fire was reported early Friday. Authorities say the single-story house was destroyed.

Sheriff Vernon Stanford said family members were being informed of what he called “just a tragic, tragic” fire.

He said the children lived nearby and were spending the night with their grandmother so she wouldn’t be by herself on Christmas night.

No identifications have been released.

There was no immediate word on what may have caused the blaze.
