Fatal House Fire in Brazil

News

A fatal fire occurred just after 8:30 Monday night in Brazil leaving three people dead.

Firefighters say the house at 721 Mechanic Street was fully engulfed in flames when they arrived.

An 18-year-old, her 4-month-old daughter and a 4-year-old boy died after becoming trapped on the second floor.

Another child remains in the hospital.

Fire investigators say at least 10 family members lived in the home.

The cause of the fire is unknown, but gas service to the home had been shut-off, so the family was using space heaters to heat the house.
