Five People Dead in Berkshire County House Fire

It’s being called a tragedy in southern Berkshire County.

Five people are found dead in a house fire in the town of Sheffield.

DA Andrea Harrington says the fire was first reported just before 8 Wednesday morning along Home Road.

She says the body of the first victim was found once the fire was out.

The Berkshire Eagle is identifying the victims as Luke Karpinski, his wife Justine Wilbur, 7-year-old twins Alex and Zoe, and 3-year-old Marek.

Residents of the small community were, understandably, badly shaken.

Harrington is calling the ongoing investigation "complicated."

No word yet on the cause of the fire.
