6 killed in Lost Nation house fire

A family of six died in an overnight fire at a home in rural Dixon, Illinois. He said the roof of the home collapsed and there wasn't much of the residence remaining after firefighters put out the blaze.

According to ABC 7 Chicago, a staffer at the county's 911 center received a call just after 12 a.m. about a report of smoke in the basement of the home on the 200 block of North Miami Drive. VanVinkle said autopsies are planned and authorities didn't immediately know the ages of the children.

Four children and two adults from the same family died in a house fire early Tuesday in rural northern IL, the local sheriff said.

The names of the victims were not released. All four children were enrolled in Dixon Public Schools; two were high school students, one was in middle school and the youngest was in elementary school, the district confirmed.

Captain Isaac Dimmig of the Dixon Rural Fire Department says there was no way that firefighters could enter the house when they arrived shortly after midnight on Tuesday because by that point the entire house was consumed by flames.

The sheriff's office, Illinois State Fire Marshal and Illinois State Police are investigating the cause of the fire.
