Ohio mobile home fire kills 3 kids, hurts 2 adults

WHEELERSBURG, Ohio (AP) - A fire at a mobile home without smoke detectors has killed three children in southern Ohio.

The blaze broke out Saturday night in Wheelersburg, which sits along Ohio's border with Kentucky. The state fire marshal says two adults were injured trying to save the three children who died.

Their identities and ages were not immediately released. Investigators will release the cause of the fire after the autopsies are completed.
