Children perish in house fire

RCMP say two adults and three children have died in a house fire northwest of Edmonton.

Emergency crews were called about the blaze in the hamlet of Rochfort Bridge near Mayerthorpe on Thursday afternoon.

Mounties say one person was found dead in the home and, following a more extensive search, the other bodies were discovered.

Cpl. Deanna Fontaine says there's nothing to indicate the deaths are criminal.

She says officers and the fire commissioner's office are investigating.

No names have been released.

Rochfort Bridge is 105 kilometres northwest of Edmonton.
