LYNN, Mass. (AP) - Medical examiners have identified four people killed in a fire at a multifamily home in a Boston surburb nearly a month ago, while authorities continue investigating the cause of the blaze.

The Essex District Attorney’s Office announced Thursday that the medical examiner’s office identified the victims as 42-year-old Maritza Cruz Vizcaino, 36-year-old Sonia Cruz, 20-year-old Yasmin Cruz and 28-year-old Rodolfo Cruz, who were all related.

The fire ripped through the home in Lynn on Dec. 4. Firefighters made dramatic rescues and saved two people, but couldn’t get to the four victims.

The victims previously were publicly identified by relatives and friends.

Sonia Cruz was pregnant. She was the sister of Maritza Cruz Vizcaino, who was Yasmin Cruz’s mother. Relatives said Rodolfo Cruz was a nephew of Sonia and Maritza.
