5 children dead after OH house fire

YOUNGSTOWN, OHIO-Five children, including 1-year-old twins, died in a late-night fire that swept through a house after neighbours were awakened by a loud boom, firefighters said.

A woman injured in an OH house fire that killed her five young children is being treated at a Cleveland hospital.

A neighbor called 911 and alerted authorities about the fire.

Heavy flames and smoke were coming from the house when crews arrived. "I don't know the circumstances of the young lady if she has the family and things to support her but if she needs our help we have some people who are here with me this morning and will be there to give her a helping hand", said Davis. Leftover funds would go to the children's mother, she said.

Wright says two firefighters were injured.

State and local investigators are trying to determine the cause of the Sunday night blaze.

The fire on Parkcliffe Avenue in Youngstown broke out at around 11:30 p.m. Sunday.

The children ranged in age from 9 to 1 years old, according to Youngstown councilwoman Anita Davis.

The mother was in a vacant lot next to the house in nothing but her underwear, Rivera said. One was treated at the scene and the other was taken to a hospital for treatment and released.

Neighbours told WFMJ-TV the family had just moved into the house about six months ago.

The Mahoning County coroner's office hadn't publicly identified the victims by midday Monday as officials were still working to notify relatives.

Firefighters managed to pull three of the children from the burning home.

Another neighbor, Jerry Fields, stopped by to drop off two stuffed animals.

Faced with funeral expenses and medical costs, Davis says there is an immediate need.
