Authorities say a morning fire in Pennsylvania claimed the lives of five children and sent another person to the hospital.

According to Erie News Now, the fire broke out around 1:15 a.m. on Sunday.

The department said firefighters were able to rescue all seven people inside the building, and that many were young children in critical condition.

Children aged between 8 months and 7 years old were tragically killed in an early morning fire in Erie, northwest Pennsylvania, which engulfed a day care center.

The Erie Regional Chamber and Growth Partnership lists a childcare centre at the fire address.

Valerie Lockett-Slupski, standing across the street from the fire-damaged house, said she was the grandmother of four of the children, and that they were staying at the day care because their parents were working overnight, the Erie Times-News reported.
