MANCHESTER, Calif. (AP) - A four-alarm fire at a nearly 150-year-old home along the coast of Mendocino County has killed two young girls.

The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/2hly8ql ) that the fire broke out early Tuesday at a two-story Manchester home.

A man, his wife and their son were able to escape the blaze through an upstairs window but two girls, ages 9 and 14, were unable to exit the house.

Mendocino County sheriff’s officials have not released the names of the sisters who died. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
