HARRISBURG — Three are dead after an early Wednesday morning fire on Pacific Street in Harrisburg, a Harrisburg Fire Department representative said.

Firefighter Thomas Frey said the fire call came in around 1:45 a.m. for three people trapped in the two-story, single family wood structure.

Harrisburg Fire Chief John Gunning said a mother and two daughters were the deceased, but couldn't release further details. 

Frey nor Gunning would not say if the fire was suspicious, but Frey did say "multiple investigations" were going on at this time.

Gunning said while they have not established firmly where the fire started, he did say that the northeast corner of the house had flames coming through it when crews arrived on the scene.
