A family of five, including three children, was found dead in a Utah home Saturday night, local authorities said. Police found the bodies in the Springville, Utah, home after responding to a call from a concerned family member around 8 p.m. local time, Lt. David Caron of the Springville Police Department said.

"They said they had spoken with the family earlier this morning and hadn't heard from them and stopped by," Caron told NBC affiliate KSL. "When they went in and found the five of them, they immediately called us." Police did not immediately release the names of the family members, but identified them as a 37-year-old father, a 36-year-old mother, and their children: ages 14, 12 and 11. Caron added that carbon monoxide poisoning was a concern at this time of year, but that there were no dangerous carbon monoxide levels when police arrived. "So far, we found nothing that would indicate cause of death," Caron told KSL before crime scene investigators and the medical examiner's office arrived. "We'll look to see if we can determine if there was any sort of foul play."
