Burned Bodies Found After Domestic Fight

Compiled From Wire Services

Four charred bodies, including a baby in a crib, were found in an apartment consumed by fire Friday shortly after neighbors heard a fierce argument inside.

The bodies of a man, woman and two children were found in the burnt remains of the second-floor apartment about 30 miles north of downtown Los Angeles. All were from the same family, police said.

Fire broke out shortly before 12:30 a.m. following a lengthy argument, neighbors said.

“It was bad. You know, I’ve heard domestic fights before but I never heard one go this distance. It was pretty bad,” Brian MacDonald said.
