Tampa house fire kills grandmother, 2 children


TAMPA - Two young boys and their grandmother died in a house fire in Tampa early Tuesday morning, according to Tampa Fire Rescue.

A third child survived and was hospitalized. One firefighter was treated for heat exhaustion.

 Fire Rescue responded to the home on East Paris Street near North 39th Street around 4:30 a.m.

The call originally came in as one alarm. But due to the number of victims, the call was escalated to two alarms.

The fire was extinguished around 5:30 a.m.

Because there were fatalities, arson investigators were also called in. But the cause of the blaze has not been determined.

No names have been released.
