BOOTHBAY, Maine — Authorities have released the names of the victims in a house fire in Boothbay that killed two men and injured four other people.

Officials say 50-year-old Baldomero Zamora and 23-year-old Lucas Farias were killed Sunday morning. The two men were asleep on the second floor when the blaze broke out in the first-floor living room.

Authorities say 48-year-old Julie Gilbert jumped from a second-floor window. She’s being treated at a local hospital. Gilbert is the mother of Farias and the girlfriend of Zamora. All three are from Chicago.

Another woman and her two young children from Winslow escaped the burning home with minor injuries.

Officials say the group had rented the home for the weekend to celebrate Zamora’s birthday.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
