Four people were killed and ten injured when an early morning fire tore through a home in Brooklyn, New York.

Investigators are trying to determine what sparked the blaze, but they said it does not appear suspicious.

Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said that while the cause was still under investigation by fire marshals, "we know that unattended candles, overloaded outlets and power strips, and numerous holiday traditions we all hold dear are so often the cause". Two boys, ages 12 and 13, are in stable condition at Maimonides Medical Center Five firefighters were also injured.

According to the firefighters, the second floor was completely engulfed by the fire and it took nearly two hours for 80 firefighters to control it.
