Grandmother, 3 children dead in Va house fire

GLOUCESTER, Va. (AP) — Three children and their grandmother are dead following an early morning house fire in central Gloucester County.

The Gloucester County Sheriff's Office says the ages of the children were 6 months, 2 years and 7 years. The grandmother's age was not immediately available. The names of the victims have not been released.

Authorities say six people lived in the home. The grandmother and two other adults escaped the Wednesday morning fire. But the grandmother re-entered the burning house to try to save the children.

The sheriff's office says the two other adults who escaped the fire were taken to a nearby hospital and don't have life-threatening injuries.
