"We have also confirmed that the fire was started intentionally by an unknown accelerant," Hillsborough County Sheriff Col. Donna Lusczynski told reporters...
The four apparent family members -- two adults and two teenagers -- were found in their respective bedrooms after the early morning fire, Lusczynski said.
Identifying the bodies will take several days, she said.

The 34-year-old Blake, who retired from pro competition last year, was apparently leasing out the home and was not present at the time of the fire.
