Three children die in fire at their home

Fire fighters said that three children died when flames ravaged their home in Tambor de Alajuala shortly before 8 a.m. Wednesday.

Neighbors could not save the three, who were 2, 3 and 5 years, because the home was locked securely.

A grandmother had left the home briefly to put another child on a school bus a short distance away.

Although the Cuerpo de Bomberos said the home was only damaged partially, the children perished due to the smoke.
