MARINA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say five people were killed in a fire at a California home care facility for the disabled.
Police Lt. Rick Janicki says four bodies were found shortly after the blaze, and a fifth body was found by investigators Sunday morning.
The fire was reported at around 11:45 p.m. Saturday in Marina, a small coastal community in Monterey County, about 100 miles south of San Francisco.
Three Marina police officers suffered smoke inhalation when they tried to rescue people inside the burning single family home. The officers have been treated and released. Janicki says two other people were hospitalized.
The names of the deceased haven't been released. Janicki had no information on the ages or genders of the victims.
