— Authorities say they will need to use DNA testing and other methods to positively identify the four people killed in a motel fire at the Jersey Shore.

Ocean County Prosecutor's Office Spokesman Al Della Fave said Sunday that it wasn't clear when the victims' identities would be released. But he said the county Medical Examiner's Office hoped to have its work completed within the next few days.

Della Fave said fire investigators were still working to determine how and where the fire started.

The blaze broke out around 5:30 a.m. Friday at the Mariner's Cove Motor Inn in Point Pleasant Beach. About 40 people were staying there at the time, including some who had lost their homes in Superstorm Sandy.

Eight others were injured in the fire, three critically.
