Texas Mobile Home Fire Kills 1 Woman, 3 Children

CONROE, Texas --

Early Sunday morning firefighters were called out to a large mobile home fire in Conroe. The flames ripped through the mobile home killing three children and a woman, officials said.

Neighbors said they heard a loud boom, looked outside their windows, and saw the entire home go up in flames.

The Conroe Fire Department said the three kids who died in the blaze were between the ages of 3 and 8. The woman was 27.

One neighbor who captured the blaze on her cell phone said, "There's no words for that. It's sad. They say they pulled out the other ones at 6:30. I only saw that one in the front. I mean they were little. They were real little."

The Fire Chief said it took almost two hours to get the fire under control. He says two of the children were pulled out from the bedroom but medics at the scene were unable to revive them.

The third child along with the 27 year-old woman were recovered after the fire was put out. Fire officials are currently still investigating to determine what sparked the fire.
