Officials in Oklahoma are identifying the woman and four children killed in a predawn blaze at a home in Oklahoma City.

Sgt. Gary Knight says the victims of the Wednesday morning fire are 28-year-old Jeanine Bonnet and her children: 3-year-old Kara Leon; 5-year-old Matthew Zackary Leon; 7-year-old Samantha Leon; and 8-year-old Natalie Leon.

Knight says 39-year-old Brian Poletto was hospitalized in critical condition from injuries suffered in the fire.

Firefighters initially said the youngest victim was 2.

Knight says there's no indication of foul play in the fire. But the bodies are to be sent to the state medical examiner's office for autopsies.

Firefighters found the five dead inside the home shortly after 6:30 a.m. They say the cause of the blaze was not immediately known.
