WARWICK, R.I., Feb. 7 (UPI) -- A smoldering fire killed four people in their 20s and a 7-month-old girl in a two-story home in Warwick, R.I., emergency officials said.
The dead included Amanda L. Villeneuve, 21, the mother of the 7-month-girl named Annabelle, and Nicholas Jillson, 24, the brother of former Boston Bruin hockey player Jeff Jillson, Fire Chief Kevin Sullivan said.
The home was owned by James Weeden, warden of the maximum security section of the state prison in Cranston, The Providence (R.I.) Island Journal reported Sunday.
Weeden was not in the house when the fire broke out Saturday.
The victims were found unconscious on the second floor of the home and could not be revived, Sullivan said.
The fire, which may have smoldered for hours, was reported by a caller who said he had been asleep on the first floor when a burning piece of the ceiling fell down.
The fire was not suspicious and it was not immediately known if the home had fire alarms, the report said.
