Flames engulfed a day care center in the northern Mexican city of Hermosillo on Friday, killing at least 29 children and sending dozens more the hospital, an official said. The fire apparently started at a car and tire depot Friday afternoon and spread to the ABC day care center, said Jose Larrinaga, a spokesman for Sonora state investigators. He said the fire was controlled within two hours and that most children had died of asphyxiation. "We're still investigating what caused the fire and where exactly it started," Larrinaga said.
