Indiana State Police have released the names of the six people who were killed in a house fire early Wednesday morning and the names of the people who escaped the fire.

The victims were identified as Joseph Huddleston 42, Brandi Vail, 25, Kadee Huddleston 10, Swayzee Hite, 3, Rhylie Hite, 1, and Marshall Hite, 3 months.

Swayzee, Rhylie and Marshall are Brandi's children.

The two people who escaped the fire were Sheila Huddleston, 43, and Brandon Huddleston, 19.

Joseph is married to Shelia and is the father of Brandon and Kadee.

Sheila is Brandi's mother.

Major appliances have been ruled out as a cause of the fire.

Fire officials believe the fire was likely caused by an electrical issue, but the home was too badly damaged to further investigate.

The home did not have working smoke detectors.
