Ohio mobile home fire kills 3 kids, hurts 2 adults


WHEELERSBURG, Ohio (AP) -- Authorities say three children under the age of 5 died in a fire at a mobile home in southern Ohio.

The blaze broke out Saturday night in Wheelersburg, which sits along Ohio's border with Kentucky.

Authorities say the children were 11 months old, 2 years old and 4 years old.

A spokesman for the state fire marshal says the children's father and another relative were injured trying to save the three kids. Their identities were not immediately released.

Investigators will release the cause of the fire after the children's autopsies are completed. No smoke alarms were found in the home.

The state fire marshal says 143 fire-related deaths have been reported in 2010.
