Jan 12 - Six children were killed on Thursday after a fire tore through a three-story house in Baltimore in the night, city fire department officials said.

Their mother was injured in the blaze, along with three more of her nine children, authorities said.The fire had engulfed the house by the time firefighters arrived on the scene at about 12:30 a.m. and its third floor collapsed onto the second floor shortly afterwards, Baltimore Fire Department spokesman Chief Roman Clark said.

Officials began recovering the bodies of the children, aged between 9 months to 11 years old, at about 10:30 a.m., he said

Firefighters had to battle the blaze from outside due to the severity of the flames and destruction. An excavator was used to remove heavy debris before a more detailed search for one of the bodies, Clark said.
