Ten people were murdered by a fire that ripped through a Pennsylvania home early on Friday morning, including three children. All of the victims belonged to the same family and were connected to a volunteer fireman who had rushed to the disaster.

Seven adults and three children between the ages of 5 and 7 perished in the Nescopeck fire, according to state police. According to first responders, three more people managed to flee the oncoming conflagration.

Harold Baker, a volunteer firefighter from Nescopeck, informed FOX3 that his son, daughter, father-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, three grandchildren, and two other relatives were among the casualties.

Baker told the FOX3, “When we rounded the corner here on Dewey Street, I immediately recognized the house by glancing down the street.” “I was on the first engine, and when we arrived, the entire station was in chaos. We attempted to contact them.”

Baker told WNEP that thirteen dogs were also in the residence when it caught fire at 2:30 a.m. It was unknown whether any of them had survived.


“The children that were present, along with my two children, were visiting their aunt and uncle.” Those people were the house’s owners. “They were there for a visit and swimming in the pool, among other activities,” Baker said.

Neighbors reported hearing a loud bursting sound or explosion and saw the house immediately engulfed in flames.

Some neighbors claim that a young man shouted “They’re all dead” in front of the house.

A “complicated criminal investigation” was ongoing, according to Lieutenant Derek Felsman of the Pennsylvania State Police.
