State Fire Marshal's officials are investigating a fire in Avoyelles Parish that has left four dead.  Fire Marshall Butch Browning says the fire occurred just before midnight Thursday night at a mobile home in Marksville.

"We've got a father, the father's mother, and then two children, a female and a male of the father, that all died in this fire."

The victims' ages range from 10 to 73-years-old.  Browning says firefighters tried to do a search of the mobile home, but the flames were too intense...

"So they did their best to quickly extinguish the fire and try to get in there.  Typically we find in these type of fires, in normal fire environment, people could actually perish in the fire within minutes of the fire starting."

Browning says they believe the four victims were asleep at the time of the fire.  He says the mother of the children was at work when the blaze broke out.  Browning says the investigation is in its initial stages.

"It'll be several days 'til we can work with the coroner to determine exact causes of death and what actually caused this fire."
