CLUNE — Authorities in western Pennsylvania say a woman and a boy were killed in a fire that swept through a mobile home.

The county coroner's office says 50-year-old Vickie Milliron of Claridge, who was visiting the home, was found dead outside of burn injuries.

Nine-year-old Michael Jerome Collier, who lived in the home, was found dead of smoke inhalation about three hours later.

Two other people were flown to UPMC Mercy in Pittsburgh; no information was available about their identities or conditions.
