6 found dead after house fire in Fukushima Pref

Six people were found dead early Thursday after a fire at a wooden house in Japan's northeastern prefecture of Fukushima, local police said.
Firefighters received an emergency call at around 11:05 p.m. Wednesday about the fire in the town of Ono. The fire was extinguished about an hour later.
A total of nine people including four children lived in the house owned by 61-year-old Tsuneyoshi Shiota. Two of the residents -- Shiota's wife in her 50s and his son-in-law in his 30s -- have been confirmed to be safe.
The fire burned down the partially two-story house and an adjacent warehouse. Shiota's wife sustained minor injuries on both her hands, while his son-in-law was away from home for work.
A neighbor said Shiota could not walk well due to ongoing mobility issues.
