ELMIRA, N.Y. (AP) - People in an upstate New York neighborhood say the four victims of a home fire were children.

Friday night's fire swept through a two-story home on a tidy block in the riverside city of Elmira, near the Pennsylvania border. Fire officials say the building was engulfed in flames when they arrived.

Authorities say four people were rushed to a hospital but died. Neighbors say the four were children. Police confirm children are among the dead.

Neighbor Glen Bolt tells the Elmira Star-Gazette he ran across the street when he saw flames pouring out of the home's windows and front door. He says the children in the home ranged in age from around 5 to 15.

The cause and circumstances of the fire are under investigation.
