Five found slain in Denver bar arson

DENVER — Denver police have no suspects as they investigate the deaths of five people whose bodies were found at a neighborhood bar after a fire broke out early Wednesday. Investigators believe the five were killed before the fire and the blaze was set to cover up the slayings.

The fire at Fero’s Bar & Grill was spotted just before 2 a.m., closing time for bars, by a police officer on patrol. Firefighters found four women and a man dead inside.

Police Chief Robert White said there is nothing to indicate a murder-suicide, indicating that whoever is responsible is still at large. He said he was hopeful the killings were an isolated act but could not say for sure yet.

‘‘It’s very alarming and that’s why it’s so important that we investigate it to the fullest,’’ White said, as investigators continued their work inside the bar.

The bar is located in a strip mall about 5 miles south of downtown Denver.
