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.
