Officials: Twin Toddlers, Grandparents Killed in Md. House Fire
CHILLUM, Md. (AP)- Fire officials are identifying a Prince George's County couple and their twin grandchildren who were killed in a house fire.
Officials say firefighters called to Knollbrook Drive in Chillum early Tuesday pulled four people from the burning home.
At a news conference, Fire Chief Marc Bashoor said the grandparents died at the scene and the twins were taken to a hospital, where they died. He identified the children as 2-year-old Anna and Israel Omijie and their grandparents as 55-year-old Caroline and 63-year-old Samson Omogbo.
Bashoor says the twins' mother jumped from a second-floor window, but her injuries are not life-threatening.
Bashoor says there's no sign of a smoke alarm in the home. He says the cause is under investigation, but so far there's no evidence of foul play.
