Authorities say four young children killed in a Darlington County mobile home fire died from smoke inhalation.

Coroner J. Todd Hardee on Thursday identified the children as 10-month-old sisters Myasia and Kynasia Hawkins. Their brothers, 2-year-old Camaron Mason and 4-year-old Delonta Dixon, were also killed.

It took firefighters less than 10 minutes to put out the fire that broke out Wednesday afternoon at the home near Hartsville, a city of some 8,000 people about 60 miles east of the state capital of Columbia.

Authorities are still working to determine what caused the fire. Investigators have said they are not sure where the children's mother was when the fire started.

Authorities say four children have died in a fire that swept through a mobile home in the South Carolina city of Hartsville.

A spokesman for the city, Russell Cox, said firefighters found the bodies Wednesday afternoon after taking about 10 minutes to put out the blaze. Cox says a local coroner has not yet released the names or ages of the victims.

A photograph taken by the Darlington County sheriff showed the charred interior of the mobile home while the outside appeared to be relatively undamaged. A tricycle and another children's toy could be seen in the yard.

Investigators have just begun to look through the home's charred interior and had no immediate report on a possible cause.
