EAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio (KDKA) — A fire that killed a father and his three sons in East Liverpool, Ohio, has been ruled arson.

On Sunday, authorities identified the victims as 37-year-old Ulrick Estimot and his three sons, 11-year-old Trey, 7-year-old Terrell and 5-year-old Trenton.

Their home on Vine Street caught on fire just after midnight Saturday.

East Liverpool Fire Chief Williams Jones told KDKA-TV that it was impossible for his men to make any rescues because of the intense heat and flames.
