UPDATE: We can now confirm that all four victims were children.
Four people are dead after a fire in the Lake Ozark area. It began in the 1600 block of Carol Road just before 1am. Lake Ozark Fire Protection District says when they arrived on scene and attempted to do a primary search, the fire was too intense and forced them into defensive mode. Osage Beach, Eldon, Rocky Mount, and Sunrise Beach assisted along with the State Fire Marshal’s Office. More details are expected to be released at a press conference later today.
