Five children die in horrific house fire

FIRE claims the life of five US children after their mobile home roof collapsed making rescue attempts impossible.

Firefighters attempted to rescue the children from the mobile home in Edna, a small town in Texas of less than 6000 residents, but had to retreat after the floor and walls began collapsing.

The parents of the children were found outside the home as they helplessly watched on as their children were unable to be rescued.


Two of the children who tragically passed were girls aged five and six, while the three others were boys aged nine, 13 and 15.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
