4 dead after house fire in Tokyo suburb

Four people died on Sunday when a fire burned down a house in the suburbs of Tokyo, police said.
A nearby resident made an emergency call around 2:45 a.m. to report the fire at the two-story wooden house in the city of Hino. The blaze was extinguished about two and a half hours later.
The four are believed to have been members of the family living in the house. The police identified two, who were taken to a hospital and confirmed dead, as Minae Ichikawa, 71, and her husband's mother Chisato Ichikawa, 98.
The remaining two, who were found dead at the scene, are believed to be Ichikawa's husband in his 70s and the couple's eldest son.
"I heard a large popping sound twice and saw a flash. Smoke quickly engulfed nearby houses," said Kenichi Sugito, a 45-year-old living in the neighborhood.
