    (WGRB)

    Five people have been found dead after a fire in a home in western Massachusetts, according to authorities.

    Berkshire District Attorney Andrea Harrington said the fire in Sheffield was reported just before 8 a.m. Wednesday.

    Authorities said the home was fully engulfed when fire crews arrived.

    The fire was out just over an hour later, and the bodies were found when firefighters entered the home.

    Harrington did not take questions at a Wednesday afternoon news conference. She called the investigation "complicated."

    No additional details about the victims have been disclosed.

    The cause remains under investigation.
