4th of July tragedy:4 killed in Pennsylvania house fire

The victims were two children, a 65-year-old man and a man in his 40s, according to a fire official. Overcooked food appears to be the cause of the fire.



LANCASTER, Pa. — Authorities say an early morning fire at a central Pennsylvania home has killed four people, including two children, and left three other residents critically injured.

Fire Chief Timothy Gregg says the fire started in the kitchen of the three-story duplex at about 3 a.m. Thursday. He says investigators believe the cause was overcooked food.

He says the dead are two children, a 65-year-old man and a man in his 40s.


Lancaster Online identified the victim as Jimmie Moore, a Vietnam veteran who owned the home.
"Rest in peace, dad," Cyrena Brock, one of hius daughters, told the paper. “He was a hero to me."

The blaze sent seven people to the hospital. A Lancaster General Hospital official says three patients were transferred to a burn center in critical condition. Another person was in serious condition. Several others were treated and released.

Gregg says several families lived in the home and there were no smoke detectors.AP

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
