TIFFIN — A fire swept through a mobile home Sunday morning, killing a man and five young children, police said.
The fire was reported shortly before 8 a.m. Sunday in a mobile home park in Tiffin, about 50 miles southeast of Toledo, city police said in a release.
Part of the mobile home was engulfed in flames when fire crews arrived, police said. Fire crews pulled the man and the children from the home, and all six were taken to Tiffin Mercy Hospital, where they were later pronounced dead, police said.
Police did not immediately release the identities of those killed or comment on a possible cause.
Neighbors in the park of about 85 mobile homes said a man lived in the home with his girlfriend, their son and the girlfriend's four daughters. They estimated that the five children ranged in age from about 1 to about 5 or 6. The woman was at work at a fast-food restaurant when the fire occurred, they said.
