LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - Three people are dead after a fire in Lebanon.

Family members say Thomas Burlile, Wesley Leveque and another roommmate, A.J. Hager, died when smoke and flames filled their home Monday morning.

The county coroner hasn't officially released the victims' identities.

But the more than century old house was reportedly not in any condition to be lived in.

Ohio's fire marshal says it could be several days before we know the cause.
