A teenager is among the four victims who died over the weekend in an apartment fire in Emmaus, Pennsylvania, the Lehigh County Coroner's Office announced Tuesday.

According to the coroner's office, Montana Twining, 16, Lena Marie Adamo, 56, David Jenkins, Jr, 65, and Melissa A. Twining, 48, died in Sunday's fire on South 5th Street.

The coroner's office says all four victims were pronounced dead at the scene. Autopsies performed on each victim revealed smoke inhalation to be the cause of death.

The fire sparked shortly before noon Sunday. Witnesses told FOX 29 on Sunday the building housed at least five apartment units and was once a funeral home before it was converted into a residential living space.
