4 in family dead; 2 children critical after house fire

INDIANAPOLIS – A fire official says an Indianapolis house fire has killed a man, a woman and two of their children, and left the two surviving siblings in “very critical” condition.

Capt. Rita Reith said a motorist along Interstate 70 first reported the fire about 9:10 a.m. Saturday but subsequent 911 calls helped fire officials determine the home’s location.

Reith said firefighters pulled the parents and their four children, all in critical condition, from a small bungalow-style home and quickly extinguished the fire.

She said the parents, a man in his early 40s and a woman in her early 30s, were pronounced dead at a hospital.

Two of the children were pronounced dead at Riley Hospital for Children, where their siblings remain hospitalized in very critical condition.
