WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- Pennsylvania police say two adults and three children have been found dead inside a cabin in the north-central part of the state.

The Williamsport Sun-Gazette reports that the bodies were discovered by the cabin owner just before noon Saturday in Lycoming County. State police say they do not consider the deaths suspicious at this time.

Police say a propane heater was in the home, but authorities are not yet sure what caused the deaths.

The two adults were identified as 23-year-old Jacqueline R. Stackhouse, of New Columbia, and 30-year-old Nathan L. Reece, of Muncy. The names of the children -- a 3-year-old boy, a 9-year-old girl and a 4-year-old girl -- weren't immediately made public.

The cabin owner says there had been a friendly gathering the night before.
