HARTSVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- Authorities say four children have died in a fire that swept through a mobile home in the South Carolina city of Hartsville. 

A spokesman for the city, Russell Cox, said firefighters found the bodies Wednesday afternoon after taking about 10 minutes to put out the blaze. Cox says a local coroner has not yet released the names or ages of the victims. 

A photograph taken by the Darlington County sheriff showed the charred interior of the mobile home while the outside appeared to be relatively undamaged. A tricycle and another children's toy could be seen in the yard.
