The State Fire Marshal's Office is investigating a fatal fire that killed four members of a family north of Ketchum.

A family member tells News On 6 a brother and sister were staying with their grandmother and uncle when the fire broke out overnight. They've been identified as Better Yust, her son Marty and two grandchildren.

Relatives tell us they are shocked and don't have a lot to say other than that they are reaching out to other family members. We understand the children went to Adair Public Schools.

The State Fire Marshal's Office said the grandmother was in her mid-60s, her son in his late 30s and two grandchildren ages 12 and 14. They are working to learn why the mobile home caught fire.

Family members say they have a strong church family that will take care of them.

"It's just very heart breaking," said neighbor Shayla Earp. "They're in my hearts and prayers, that's for sure."

The State Fire Marshal's Office and the Craig County Sheriff's Office are investigating.
