Police in Washington state say a man apparently set fire to his own home, killing himself and five of his children.

Police in Vancouver said Wednesday they believe those killed in Sunday's fire are 37-year-old Tuan Dao, 12-year-old Nolan, 9-year-olds Noah and Jacob, 8-year-old Samantha and 6-year-old Nathan.

The Clark County medical examiner's office has not confirmed the identities.

Residents had reported an explosion that shook the neighborhood. Kapp says the fire was intentionally set with a liquid fuel that exploded, and Tuan Dao is the only suspect.

The Oregonian reported Dao's wife, Lori, and a 13-year-old daughter were away at the time.

The Columbian newspaper has reported that according to court documents, the family filed for bankruptcy and owed more money on the home than it was valued.
