POTTSVILLE (AP) — Code enforcement officials in Pottsville say they had recommended smoke detectors for a home where two adults and four children were killed in a Mother’s Day fire.

The Republican-Herald reported fire Chief Todd March said it appears there weren’t any smoke detectors in the home when the fire broke out late Sunday. Investigators haven’t determined a cause.

The blaze killed four children between the ages of 2 and 8, along with their father and an aunt. Their mother had been at a neighbor’s house doing laundry. Investigators believe the fire started in the kitchen.
