The cause of a fire in Montgomery County that killed two adults and one child was not suspicious, officials say.

Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele says the fire appears to have originated on the enclosed porch, but preliminary investigation indicates that it does not appear to be suspicious in origin.

The fire started around 4 a.m. Saturday on the 800 block of DeKalb Street.

Steele says autopsies are being performed on the three victims who lost their lives.

Six others were injured, including a child who was taken to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia in critical condition.

The investigation is continuing.
