Four Children and Mom Killed in Saturday Fire
Four children and their mother are dead after a fire burned down their mobile home early Saturday morning.
TV20 spoke with a friend of the victims, who says the bodies are that of 25-year-old Tabetha Belanger and her four young sons Hunter, Nicholas, Michael and Aron.
According to friends of the family, Belanger's fiance was hunting with his best friend Saturday morning, when his father delivered the news of the fire.
Marion County Fire Rescue says this is the highest number of fatalities they've encountered in a single-structure fire in the last 20 years.
