WARREN This morning's Landsdowne Avenue fire appears to be the deadliest fire in the city's history.
The fire at 911 Landsdowne killed two adults and four children. At the scene now, several neighbors are crying and praying on the street while city fire department investigators and members of the state fire marshal's office are sifting through debris on the back porch. The Trumbull County Mental Health and Addiction Board is setting up a counseling center at Jefferson K - 8 School for anyone who needs help.
Warren Fire Chief Ken Nussle said the blaze started at about 4:43 a.m., and was called in by a neighbor behind the home on Lover's Lane.

Nussle said flames were shooting about 30 feet into the air by the time firefighters arrived.
The chief could not find any records of more than three deaths in a single fire in Warren's history. ``It's definitely our worst day,'' he told Tribune Chronicle news partner WYTV.
