LANCASTER — Authorities in central Pennsylvania say an early fire on the Fourth of July has claimed the lives of four people.

Officials in Lancaster County say the blaze broke out about 3 a.m. Thursday in a home in the city of Lancaster.

Dr. Stephen Diamantoni, the county coroner, confirmed that four people died in the blaze.

He declined to provide other details about the victims, saying officials were still working to confirm their identities. Autopsies are scheduled for Friday.

Fire Chief Timothy Gregg told The Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era that seven others were taken to the hospital.

Information about their conditions was not immediately available.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
