Six people died in a fire at a Wisconsin apartment building early Friday, police say.
Police had earlier reported that seven people had died.
The fire was reported around 5 a.m. at a four-family apartment building in Hartland, about 26 miles west of Milwaukee. Fifteen fire departments and nine police departments responded to the scene and worked to rescue people from the building and its balconies, Hartland police said at a news conference.
An “active criminal investigation” is currently underway, police said. Asked by a reporter if there was any indication the fire was started on purpose, police said it was “very early in the investigation stages – that’s what we’re looking into”.
The names and ages of the victims were not immediately released.
