SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - San Jose fire investigators are looking through the rubble of an apartment as they try to determine what sparked a fire that killed three people and sent three others to a hospital late Saturday.
San Jose Fire Department Capt. Mary Gutierrez says when firefighters reached the scene shortly after 11 p.m. Saturday they found some people trapped in the burning apartment on the second floor of the building.
After the fire was put out, firefighters found the bodies of a man, a woman and a child.
The names of the three people have not been released.
San Jose fire Capt. Reggie Williams told television station KTVU Sunday morning that fire investigators were interviewing witnesses and looking through burned-out remains of the apartment.
