Santone said the children who died were between 8 months to roughly 8 years old.

Lawrence Park Township Volunteer Fire Chief Joe Crotty told DailyMail.com that Jones was called out to what turned out to be a false automatic fire alarm at another building in the city about 1.49am and did not learn of his children's death until he received a phone call with the news at around 4am.

The fifth child who died has not yet been identified publicly.

One neighbor heard the screams of the teenaged boys and tried to get into the first floor of the house but was forced back by the fire, Erie News Now reported. The home also operated as a day care, according to fire officials.

"If there were the proper amount of smoke detectors in this structure, then most, if not all, would have survived", Santone told CNN and local media.

He said firefighters arrived on the scene about 25 minutes later, and found "heavy fire coming out of all the windows on the first floor, and reports were in that there were children trapped on the second floor".

Four of the victims were siblings who were being cared for at the day care, the fire chief said.

The facility is a 24-hour day care called Harris Family Daycare.

Woman found dead, man arrested after major police operation in Sydney CBD
People were out on the streets in the Sydney CBD having cofee and a bite to eat or shopping when the incident happened. A man is in custody after reportedly going on a rampage in Sydney's CBD.

"So we are all at a loss, trying to figure out how this happened", Ms Lockett-Slupski told the newspaper.

The cause of the fire remained under investigation Sunday afternoon, Widomski told the newspaper.

The state Department of Human Services Office of Child Development and Early Learning listed the day care as in compliance with requirements following a December 28, 2018, inspection.

Erie Chief Fire Inspector John Widomski said the cause of the fire remains under investigation.

Both issues were listed as "corrected", with the childcare provider's promise to "make sure [the cigarettes and ashes] will be cleaned up and remain that way" and that electrical outlets would be "turned closed when not in use". "I love them dearly".

The owner of the center was flown to UPMC Mercy for treatment, officials said, and Erie police detectives said the owner was listed in stable condition.

Both issues were said to have been marked as being corrected after the inspection.
