California personal injury attorneys alerts- An apartment fire left four children dead and two others injured.
San Francisco Bay, CA—A blazing apartment fire tragically killed four children Wednesday night, April 28, 2010 in Fairfield. Fire fighters rushed to the burning single-story building on Delaware Street around 9:00 p.m., as reported by KCRA.
When fire fighters arrived at the scene they discovered that three children were still trapped inside the burning building. Neighbors already extinguished most of the fire by the time rescue teams arrived, who were able to finish putting out the blaze. The three children who were trapped were pronounced dead at the scene. Emergency crews rushed a fourth child to the NorthBay Medical Center, where the child died. Two women were also treated for moderate injuries, which included minor smoke inhalation. One woman sustained burns to her hands. Officials were not aware if the women and children were related or what their relationship was.
Officials described the scene as chaotic and emotional. Three other apartment buildings were evacuated, but reportedly didn’t suffer any serious damage in the fire.
Fire investigators are currently probing the building in attempts to find the cause of the fire. At this time no conclusion on how the fire started has been reported.
