DENVER (AP) -- Police think a fire at a Denver neighborhood bar was set to cover up the slayings of five people who were found dead inside.

Police Chief Robert White said the fire at Fero's Bar & Grill was reported around closing time at 2 a.m.,

Firefighters found four women and one man dead inside the bar. Police don't think the fire killed them.

The fire didn't appear to be very large. No damage to the bar was visible from the street or aerial news coverage.

The bar is located in a strip mall about five miles south of downtown Denver just beyond the tony Cherry Creek North shopping district.

Frequent patron Chris Brady said the customers ranged from "semi-homeless-looking people" to patrons in suits and ties.

The victims haven't been identified.
