It's a horrible scene that has devastated a neighborhood.

Five people died in a row home fire late Monday, October 18 in Harrisburg, PA.

Four of the fire victims were young children, ranging in age from two to four years old.

Fire officials have confirmed that an adult female, 48 years old, was also among the dead.

Flames ripped through four adjacent row homes, spreading fast.

Even though firefighters arrived within three minutes, they weren't able to save the five victims.

Fire officials are not yet sure of the relationship between the five people.

Firefighters found no working smoke detectors inside the home where the victims were recovered.

An investigation is underway.
