Two adults and four children are believed to be dead after a house fire broke out in Logansport, Indiana. Early morning Wednesday a 42 year old, 25 year old, 10 year old,  3 month old, 1 year old, and a 3 year old were all trapped in a two story house when it had caught on fire and collapsed when the fire gutted most of the inside of the home. The fire was reported at 2 a.m. and two police officers had arrived at the scene minutes later, they attempted to enter the house but the flames and heat were too much for them to handle. When the firefighters had arrived the flames had gotten bigger and more aggressive which had made it harder for them to rescue anyone. The firefighters tried to put out the fire but were set back because of the lack of fire hydrants, so they had to wait about five minutes for more tanks to arrive. Fire personnel and policemen spent most of Wednesday at the scene. Officials have also released that there were two other adults that did make it out of the fire and are believed to be the 42 year old man’s wife and son. The wife and son were rushed to the hospital and only one of them had bad injuries.

Officials are still investigating the scene to possibly find the remains of the six people that died. According to State Fire Marshal Jim Gresson, “the investigation could take days or weeks because of  the amount of devastation.” State Officials say that the fire is being investigated as a crime case, but the state fire marshal will make the final decision.
