4 children killed in Missouri house fire, 5 other people escape
TRENTON (AP) - A northwest Missouri house fire has claimed four lives while five other people inside the residence managed to escape.
The Trenton Police Department says the blaze in the second story of a Trenton home was reported just before 1 a.m. Saturday.
KCTV-TV reports all four victims were children, including three siblings, according to their grandmother.
A spokesman for the state fire marshal's office says there is no indication of foul play.
Media questions were referred to a lieutenant with the Trenton Fire Department, but he didn't immediately return a call Saturday seeking additional details.
Trenton is about 90 minutes northeast of Kansas City.
