    United States: ten dead including three children in the fire of a house

    The three children, two boys and a girl, were aged five, six and seven. The ages of the other seven victims range from 19 to 79 years old.

    Ten people, including three children, died Friday in a house fire in Pennsylvania, in the eastern United States, police said in a statement.

    The emergency services intervened very early Friday morning in a house in Nescopeck, a small town in the east of the state, and “10 victims” including “three minors” were “found dead in the building”, indicated the police of Pennsylvania in a statement sent to AFP.

    At the start of the year, two terrible fires had marked the northeastern United States: 17 people, including eight children, had perished on January 9 in a building in the working-class district of the Bronx, in New York.

    And, five days earlier, eight children and four adults had succumbed to a fire in a public housing district in the center of Philadelphia, the main city of Pennsylvania.
