Northwestern DA confirms identity of woman, children killed in Warwick fire

Shock and grief after mother, 4 children die in house fire

Lucinda Seago, 42, died in the fire that tore through her Richmond Road home around 12:45 a.m. Saturday.

The Office of Northwestern District Attorney David E. Sullivan on Monday confirmed that a mother and four children were killed in a fire early Saturday morning in Warwick. "When we got on scene, the house was totally engulfed - we lost a mother and four children".

According to published reports, two other members of the household - a father and child - escaped with minor injuries.

Located in Franklin county on the state's border with New Hampshire, Warwick had a population of 774 people in 2013, according to the Massachusetts Department of Revenue's division of local services.




Young said the town was coming together to mourn the loss and respond to the tragedy. "They were wonderful people".

Warwick Fire and State Police assigned to the Office of the State Fire Marshal are investigating the exact cause of the blaze. They had to pipe in water from a pond about a quarter of a mile away.

The state fire marshal said the blaze appears to be accidental, and may have originated at a wood stove in the kitchen. O'Mannion said the family worshiped at the church and two of the children who died in the fire were altar servers at the church.
