Fire officials say six people, including four children, have died in a house fire in northeast Ohio. Shane Cartmill of the state fire marshal's office says the dead include two adults, their two children and two other children who were visiting. He says it's not clear whether the other two children were related to the family.

The fire department says the initial call came at about 4:45 a.m. Thursday in the community about 50 miles southeast of Cleveland. Fire Chief Ken Nussle tells WFMJ-TV of Youngstown it's "a dark day for Warren."

Cartmill says no sign of smoke alarms have been found in the home. He says the fire's cause and origin are not known.

Video of the fire shows half the home's roof burned through.
