Special photo Henry County Firefighters worked to extinguish an early morning blaze, which destroyed a Stockbridge home, on Feb. 12. Officials report the blaze began in the garage, however, they have not determined the cause of the fire.
Seven children are dead after police say a central Pennsylvania farm house caught fire while their mother was in a barn milking cows and their father was taking a nap in a milk delivery truck.
Trooper Tom Pinkerton says a 3-year-old girl escaped from the blaze to alert her mother, who police believe tried to get into the home before running to a neighbor's home for help.
Pinkerton says the woman then ran to get her husband, who had dozed off in a milk truck about a mile from the house in Loysville, about 20 miles outside Harrisburg.
Officials say the children who died ranged in age from 7 months to 11 years old.
The Perry County coroner's office says they died of smoke inhalation.
The cause is under investigation.
