WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Wichita authorities on Wednesday released the identities of two adults and two young children killed in a mobile home fire this week.

Seven people were inside the double-wide mobile home when the fire started around 3 a.m. Tuesday. All four people who died were found in the same bedroom.

Fire Marshal Brad Crisp identified the victims as 21-year-old Amanda Nichols; her 1-year-old son, Isaaca; 27-year-old Camaron McGowan, and his 2-year-old son, K'dyn McGowan.

Crisp said autopsies have been completed, but the cause of death and cause of the fire had not been released. The four deaths in a single fire is the most since a 1987 fire killed four children, he said.

Three people in the mobile home escaped. Those three, a firefighter and a neighbor who helped sustained minor injuries, Crisp said. Damages were estimated at $50,000 to the structure and $20,000 to the contents, he said.

Another nearby fire in a mobile home was reported a few hours earlier. One adult sustained smoke inhalation and was treated and released. Authorities have said the two fires weren't related.
