Four people were found dead in two burning homes in a town in northeastern Nebraska.Nebraska

Four people were found dead Thursday in two homes burning in a small rural northeastern town. Nebraska Authorities say the suspect is still at large.

Colonel John Bolduc of the Nebraska Patrol said at a press conference that a man was seen driving away from the city of Laurel before his body was found and investigators wanted to talk to him.

Bolduc said firefighters who responded to a call of an explosion and fire in one of the homes on Thursday morning found a human body inside. Moments later, firefighters were called to his second burning house, where he was found three bodies.

Authorities did not release the name of the deceased or the cause of death, but witnesses said a man leaving Laurel in a silver car may have picked up passengers.

Police said the person involved in the arson probably suffered burns.

Laurel has a population of less than 1,000 and is located approximately 100 miles (161 km) northwest of Omaha.

According to Laurel City Hall administrative assistant Lori Hansen, most of the town’s businesses, senior centers and schools were voluntarily shut down on the recommendation of the police.
