YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WFMJ) – An investigation is underway after a deadly house fire killed five children late Sunday night in Youngstown.

According to WFMJ, five children are dead after a fire broke out at 11:30 p.m.

A neighbor called 911 and alerted authorities.  The children’s mother reportedly jumped out of a window and told firefighters at the scene that five children were still inside the burning home.

The mother is currently in a hospital being treated for her injuries.

Firefighters battled flames at the front part of the home and then immediately searched for the children.  Rescuers were able to get three of the five children out of the structure and began life saving measures. Sadly all three of the children pulled from the fire died.

Two firefighters were also injured.
