7 people killed in fire at home near possible arson site

Firefighters have not been able to get into the home and Lash said they are unsure of exactly how many people died in the fire. A fire marshal's official said investigators used a dog while collecting evidence but wouldn't say what that evidence was.

Family members have told investigators that several people lived inside the home, and they believe all of them were inside when the fire broke out.

According to Ohio.com, two women who appeared to be family members showed up at the scene Monday afternoon and began sobbing. The youngest is believed to be about eight months old.

Crews responded to the corner of Fultz and Hite Streets around 2:50 a.m. and found the home fully engulfed in flames.

Tucker says the Akron Fire Department is working with the state fire marshal's office and police to determine the cause of the fire.

Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan issued a statement calling the fire "tragic".

"We're just asking for your prayers, just keep our family's name lifted up", Huggins said.

Dennis Huggins' brother, 45-year-old Tony Huggins, stood near the fire-ravaged home Monday evening with his wife, Damonica Huggins, fighting back tears.

The fire occurred a block from a home where a man and a woman died in an April 2016 fire investigated as a potential arson, but there was no indication the fires were related. "'We will see to it that the victims" families are supported in this time of great sorrow and need'. That fire was ruled an arson.

It's one of the deadliest fires in Akron history. Every dollar buys four meals for the hungry.
