Three people killed Sunday in a mobile-home fire in Indiana County died from carbon monoxide toxicity, Coroner Jerry L. Overman Jr. said today.

Mr. Overman said the fire that killed Shawn Marsh, 28, Nicole Novak, 27, and Gabriella Novak, 9, appeared to be accidental, but he is still consulting with investigators before making a final determination.

The three were trapped in a rear bedroom.

Mr. Overman's office is still awaiting information on the carbon monoxide levels inside the trailer.

Pennsylvania State Police are investigating.
