POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) ' Authorities say a fire tore through a private home being rented by college students in upstate New York, killing three people.

The victims were identified as two female Marist College students and one male, who was not a student at the school. Their names have not been released.

The cause of the fire in Poughkeepsie remains under investigation.



Town Police Chief Thomas Mauro says the off-campus house was being rented by six female Marist students. Several had guests there Friday night. A group of four residents and their male guests stayed the night, while others went elsewhere.

The fire was called in to 911 about 1:30 a.m. Saturday.

Four people made it out of the fire, were taken to a hospital, treated and released.
