Three children have tragically died in a house fire that took place in west Baltimore early on Saturday morning.
Firefighters were called to the scene on Brighton Street at around 2:30 am where they found four people trapped in a two-story row home.
Crews rescued three children and a woman from the blaze and transported them to hospital in critical condition.
Unfortunately, all three children have since died from their injuries, and the woman remains in critical condition.
A man who was outside the house when firefighters arrived was also taken to hospital in critical condition but has since been released.
It is not yet known if the home had working smoke alarms.
In response to the tragedy, the assistant fire chief has urged Baltimoreans to call 311 if they do not have a working smoke alarm and the fire department will install one for free.
The mayor has also released a statement expressing his condolences and offering support to the family.
An investigation is underway.
