Two people in their 70s and two children under the age of 10 died in a house fire in Bedford County late Sunday night.
The fire occurred at a home on Kingdom Road around 11 p.m.
The victims have been identified as 72-year-old Leon McClaran, Molly McClaren, 70, Chloe Pope, 9, and 7-year-old Gage Daniel.
The deceased children, who attended Community Elementary School in Unionville, TN, were the couple’s step-grandchildren, according to family members.
Bedford County Sheriff Randall Boyce said he believed the home was a two-story house that collapsed into the basement.
