NEW ULM, Minn. (AP) -- A bed and breakfast owner and her two daughters are among the six killed in a fire in New Ulm.

New Ulm fire and police officials haven't identified the victims, saying only that four adults, an adolescent and a child were killed in the fire early Saturday.

But family and friends tell The Journal of New Ulm that one victim was the inn's owner, Bobbi McCrea, and two others were her daughters, 15-year-old Abby and 3-year-old Savannah.

The newspaper reports four people escaped from the fire, including McCrea's fiancée, and five people staying in a carriage house on the property also got out.

Investigators haven't yet determined what started the fire at The Bohemian B&B. Police say someone driving by reported the fire before 2 a.m. Saturday.
