    HARRISBURG, Pa. – Fire ripped through a row house in central Pennsylvania on Monday night, killing five people, including four young children, and spreading to other homes, authorities said.

    Flames already had engulfed two white brick houses in uptown Harrisburg by the time fire crews arrived minutes after the alarm, which sounded between 7 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., Fire Chief Robert Talloni said.

    "There was a plume you could see for miles," he said.

    Battalion Chief Daniel Hartman told The Patriot-News that when crews arrived, "People were yelling, `The kids were inside!'"

    A 48-year-old woman and four children ranging in age from 2 to 4 were killed, said Chuck Ardo, a spokesman for the mayor's office.

    May all of their souls rest in peace, forever, and may the Lord comfort those remaining.

    A mom and 4 children dead and people are making racist comments on the news sites.

    I see it all the time now. Racism is at the worst I've seen in my 60 years.
