A house fire in Oklahoma left eight people dead, prompting police to conduct a homicide investigation.

Approximately 20 minutes south of Tulsa, Broken Arrow is a suburb of Oklahoma City. Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident.

“With the house being damaged by fire, it’s a complex scene,” police reported.

A family of eight, including six children, lives in the home, but the identities of the victims have not been confirmed.

Police found the victims in a house on S Hickory Ave, in the 400 block.

The fire was reported to police by neighbors around 4 p.m. Thursday afternoon.
