Sheriff: Three children likely died in Jameson house fire
JAMESON (AP) - Northwest Missouri authorities are continuing to search for the human remains of three young children believed to have died in a house fire over the weekend.
Daviess County Sheriff Ben Becerra said three others were able to escape the late Saturday night blaze at the Jameson home.
They are 20-year-old Jordan Curtis, 10-year-old Travis Curtis and 8-year-old Drake Curtis.
Becerra told the St. Joseph News-Press the family said then not all children were accounted for and may still be in the two-story farmhouse.
Firefighters attempted to control the blaze, but the structure collapsed.
A 9-month-old, 2-year-old and a 6-year-old are believed to have died.
The cause of the fire isn't known and remains under investigation.
