4 Children Die in House Fire

ILLINOIS - State police say this morning's fire that killed four children was not an accident or random event. Four children sleeping on the second floor of the home in Percy, Illinois were unable to escape the home as it erupted in flames.

5-year-old twin boys, their 12-year-old brother and 9-year-old sister just couldn't get out. The parents and a cousin escaped unharmed while one child was rescued and is currently being treated for injuries.

Officials have not named a suspect, but say charges will be filed in the case.
