Four found dead in two burning homes
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.
