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.

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

The fire gutted Harris Family Day Care, local news portal GoErie.com said.

Erie Bureau of Fire Inspector Mark Polanski helps investigate the fatal fire at 1248 West 11th St.in Erie. Erie police detectives said she is in stable condition.

Erie News Now reports that first responders did chest compressions on the victims as they left the scene on stretchers.

"Our prayers go out to the families involved in this tragic fire, to the neighbors, and to our firefighters", Erie city officials said in their Facebook post.
