HARTSVILLE, SC -

Authorities say four children have died in a fire that swept through a mobile home in the South Carolina city of Hartsville.
    
A spokesman for the city, Russell Cox, said firefighters found the bodies Wednesday afternoon after taking about 10 minutes to put out the blaze. Cox says a local coroner has not yet released the names or ages of the victims.
    
A photograph taken by the Darlington County sheriff showed the charred interior of the mobile home while the outside appeared to be relatively undamaged. A tricycle and another children's toy could be seen in the yard.
    
Investigators have just begun to look through the home's charred interior and had no immediate report on a possible cause.
