Three children are dead after a house fire in Minneapolis late Saturday night, Minneapolis Fire Department confirmed. All three victims are believed to be under the age of 7.
Officials believe the fire initially started in the kitchen, but the cause is under investigation. The mother said she left the oven door open for heat.
Police were dispatched to the 2700 block of Penn Ave N. shortly before midnight on a report of a house fire. Firefighters said the first floor was completely engulfed when they arrived.
The family just moved in on Saturday and there was no furniture in the house.
Fire crews recovered all three children from inside the home. One of the victims was transported to the hospital but did not survive; the other two passed away on scene. No firefighters were injured.
