NEWNAN, Ga. (AP) - One adult and four young children have been killed in an early morning fire in a Georgia city about 30 miles southwest of Atlanta.

A spokesman for the state insurance commissioner says a call about the fire came in at 1:17 a.m. Saturday. Glenn Allen says Insurance Commissioner Ralph Hudgens has ruled the fire accidental. He says the origin was an electrical panel in the home's den area.

Allen says 27-year-old Alonna T. McCrary, 5-year-old daughter Eriel McCrary and 2-year-old daughter Nikia White were killed in the fire. 3-year-old Messiah White and 1-year-old Makinzie Florence also died. Allen says the two were sleeping over at the home. Another daughter, 11-year-old Nautica McCrary, was taken to a hospital for smoke inhalation. Allen says her condition is unknown.

Family members have set up a fund to help pay for funeral expenses. Anyone wishing to contribute can go to the United Bank on Bullsboro Drive in Newnan and make a donation to the "Makinzie Florence Fund."

    The first ATM for BitCoin users in New York City is up and running in a store in Greenwich Village. The controversial, virtual currency is exchanged using a 'wallet' app on mobile devices. The ATM accepts cash but only returns virtual currency to the app. At the ATM in Flat 128, a store that sells UK-designed items, the fee for store owner Liz Dubois is less than that for a credit card transaction.
