Children In Fatal Lake Ozark Fire Identified

The identities of the 4 children killed in a house fire at the Lake of the Ozarks early this morning [Thursday] have been released.

14 year old Tyler, 8 year old Carson, 5 year old Max and 4 year old Levi Otto were inside the home when fire crews were called at around 12:54AM to the single story home off Carol Road. The parents, reportedly a mother and a stepfather, were not home when the blaze broke out, but returned while fire crews were on the scene, and informed them of the children inside.

The heat from the fire was intense and prevented fire crews from making entry into the home. When they were able to enter they found the remains of the 4 boys and 2 pets.

The cause of the fire remains undetermined, but is not believed to be suspicious.

Autopsies on the children are pending.
