A fire consumed a Wisconsin home Tuesday morning and left six people dead.

Two boys and two girls ranging in age from 10 months to 7 years old died in the fire, according to Langlade County Coroner Larry Shadick. Langlade is about 90 miles northwest of Green Bay.

A 32-year-old man and a 34-year-old woman also died, Shadick said. Two women escaped.

It’s unclear how or if any of the victims were related.

The fire began around 6:20 a.m. CT. Eight people were in the home, according to CNN affiliate WSAW-TV.

Foul play is not suspected, Shadick said, but the fire is under investigation.
