A volunteer firefighter was related to ten victims of a house blaze that ravaged a Nescopeck, Pennsylvania early Friday.

The deceased were reportedly three children, ages 5,6, and 7, and seven adults. The firefighter, Harold Baker, identified them as his son, daughter, father-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, three grandchildren, and two family relatives.

“When we turned the corner up here on Dewey Street, I knew right away what house it was just by looking down the street,” Baker said.
