-

Four people were found dead Thursday in two burning homes in a small community in northeaste­rn Nebraska, authoritie­s said.

Nebraska State Patrol Col. John Bolduc said a man was seen driving away from the city of Laurel, about 100 miles northwest of Omaha, before the bodies were discovered and that investigat­ors would like to speak to him.

Firefighte­rs responding to a call Thursday morning about an explosion and fire at one of the homes found the body of a person inside, Bolduc said.

A short time later, firefighte­rs were called to a second burning home a few blocks away, where the bodies of three people were found inside.
