LOGANSPORT, Ind. (WFFT)- Authorities are investigating a house fire that killed six people, including four children. 

The call came in just before 2:00 a.m. Wednesday at a Logansport home. 

When crews arrived, they were able to rescue two adults, a mother and her adult son, but the flames were too thick to get inside. 

The house was located in a rural area with no fire hydrants, meaning the fire department had to truck in water to battle the blaze.

The Cass County Sheriff also said ammunition was going off inside the house. 

Two adults and four children, ranging in age from two months to 10 years, were killed. 

Officials said the fire is being investigated as a possible criminal case.
