The fire was reported about 5 a.m. Saturday and left five people dead inside the home. Their names have not yet been released.

Bartlesville police had no comment about the fire on Sunday and authorities were still investigating the cause of the fire.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has been called to assist in the investigation.
