This very fast moving house fire killed a mother and her three children in Brooklyn, New York yesterday. The victims were a 40-year-old woman, an 11-year-old boy, a 7-year-old boy, and a 3-year-old girl. The father and two other teenagers are in critical condition. Five firefighters were also injured. Fire burned through the second floor and the attic of the home.
FDNY Firefighters arrived in less than three minutes and were faced with heavy fire and a family trapped. The fire was caused by unattended candles on a Hanukkah menorah.
