SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Officials say a third person has died from injuries suffered during an early morning house fire in San Francisco that killed a father and his daughter.
Fire officials said the victims were 33-year-old Raymond Tse, his 1-year-old daughter Chloe Tse and the girl's grandfather.
The grandfather's identity was not released.
Fire officials say crews were called to the scene around 1:30 a.m. Friday. The mother had come home from work and was awake, but the girl, her father and grandfather were asleep.
Fire officials say the mother smelled smoke and called 911.
Crews put out the fire around 2 a.m., but were delayed from entering by a metal gate they had to cut through.
Fire investigators say the fire appears to be accidental, but have not identified a cause.
