A fire at this residence in Goldendale claimed the lives of three people early Wednesday morning. Two of the deceased were children.

A devastating fire at 608 N. Mill Street in Goldendale early this morning claimed the lives of three people, one adult and two children.

The Klickitat County Coroner's office released the names of the deceased; they are Thomas G. Blakely, 34, and his two children, Kyra Julia Blakely, 7, and Thomas Evan Blakely, 5.

The fire gutted the interior of the structure almost entirely. A neighbor called in about 2:30 a.m. this morning to report the fire.

Counselors were sent to the Goldendale Primary School where the Blakely children were enrolled.

Reports Wednesday indicate the fire started because of faulty electrical wiring.
