DENVER (AP) - Authorities have identified five people found dead at a Denver bar after a fire broke out early Wednesday.

They include 63-year-old Young Fero, of Aurora, one of the bar's owners.

The fire at Fero's Bar & Grill was spotted just before 2 a.m., closing time for bars, by a police officer on patrol. Firefighters found four women and one man dead inside.

Police chief Robert White says there's nothing to indicate a murder-suicide, meaning whoever is responsible is still at large. He says police hope the killings were an isolated act but aren't certain.

The coroner's office identified the other victims as 22-year-old Daria M. Pohl, 45-year-old Kellene Fallon, 29-year-old Ross Richter and 45-year-old Tereasa Beesley.

Pohl, Fallon and Beesley were from Denver. Richter's hometown wasn't released.
