Granny, 3 Grandkids Die in House Fire


Investigation Centers on Christmas Tree

THREE YOUNG CHILDREN AND THEIR Grandmother perished Thursday evening in a house fire in the Ft. Worth, Texas, suburb of Haltom City.  A neighbor spotted smoke coming from a broken 2nd-floor window and called in the alarm around 5 pm.  Firefighters found the house charged with smoke and began a full search.

Just inside the 2nd-story window they found the adult and on the first floor in the front room near a Christmas tree they found the three children

Channel 11 News posted this video report from the scene:


After that video was posted, it was learned that the adult was a 52-yr.old female, the grandmother of the three children whose ages were 2-months, 3- and 5-years.

The fire apparently originated in the area where a Christmas tree was still installed and unconfirmed reports say that the FF's  found a lighter in the area.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram had more details HERE.
