The Williamsport Sun-Gazette reported that the bodies were discovered just before noon Saturday by the owner of the cabin in rural Washington Township, according to Capt. David Young of state police Troop F in Montoursville.

State police said they do not consider the deaths suspicious at this time.

Police said a propane heater was in the home, but authorities weren’t 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 said there had been a friendly gathering the night before.
