1 am House Fire Claims 3 Home-Alone Kids

A Fourth Seriously Burned

MACON, GEORGIA, FIREFIGHTERS WERE dispatched to a house fire at 1:35 am Sunday morning and found a single-family dwelling with fire showing.  A good primary search turned up four children ages 3 to 10, all unresponsive.  All of them were taken out and CPR begun, but only one was able to be resuscitated.


Just as the first-in company was beginning operations the children's mother showed up on the scene from elsewhere.  Killed in the blaze were 10-year-old Nykhia Williams, 7-year-old Daija Williams and 9-year-old Jamarrion Williams. 3-year-old Jalon Williams was transported to the Burn Center in Augusta and remains in critical condition.

The investigators are still working to determine the cause of the fire.
