City fire officials continue the investigation to determine the source and cause of the fire that claimed the lives of four children and their grandmother Thursday in Northeast Baltimore.
Autopsy results on the victims, who include Nancy Worrell, 55, and four children, who range in age from 1 to 7 years old, have not yet been released.
"I would not expect anything for some time," fire department spokesman Chief Kevin Cartwright said early Friday. "We simply must allow the fire investigators the appropriate time needed to thoroughly perform their investigation and await their final dispositions."

The two firefighters injured while battling that fire have been treated and released from Johns Hopkins Bayview Hospital. As firefighters began a search-and rescue operation of the home in the 5600 block of Denwood Ave., one fell through the second story of the rowhouse into the basement and landed on top of another firefighter.
An earlier fire Thursday, in the 1400 block of Bonsal St. in the Dundalk, injured three firefighters, one of whom remains hospitalized with serious burns to his face, neck and hands. The other two firefighters have been treated and released.
