Seven bodies have been recovered after a fire burned down a house and spread to two nearby structures in Yuzawa, Akita Prefecture, on Friday night, police and firefighters said.

The authorities are trying to identify the bodies, believing that they are the seven members of the three-generation family living at the home of Yoshizo Ito, 78. So far, only Ito’s daughther-in-law, Anna, 27, has been identified.
