INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - An Indianapolis Fire Department spokeswoman says two children have died after initially surviving a fire that killed two of their siblings and their parents.
Capt. Rita Reith (right) says the 14-year-old girl and 6-year-old boy died Sunday at Riley Hospital for Children. She says the extended family is working with the hospital for possible organ procurement.
Saturday's fire swept through the small home and also killed their parents and two other siblings, ages 11 and 8.
Reith says the fire department believes the six deaths are the largest single loss of life for a family due to fire in its service district.
