(Pottsville) -- A coroner says a man who died in house fire that killed four children and two adults in Schuylkill County on Mother's Day had drugs in his system.
Schuylkill County Coroner David Moylan says a toxicology report conducted on the body of 31-year-old Eric Brown found amphetamine, methamphetamine and a substance found in marijuana.
Fire investigators are still trying to determine the cause of the May 12 blaze, which began in the kitchen.
They say it's not considered suspicious.
The fire killed Brown, his sister-in-law, 26-year-old Kristina Thomas, and Brown's children: 2-year-old Elijah Brown; 3-year-old Emily Brown; 7-year-old Jeremiah Brown; and 8-year-old Joy Brown.
Their mother had been at a neighbor's house doing laundry at the time.
