3 young children die of smoke inhalation while trapped in fire at their home

16 7 11

Three young children died of smoke inhalation in a fire at their home on Thursday morning in the Bedouin town of Hura in the south of Israel.

The siblings from the Abu Sbeit family — Abrar, 1, Khaled, 3, and Lilah, 4 — apparently suffocated, with some assessments suggesting the blaze could have been sparked by a coal heater while the children slept.

According to family members, it took 10 minutes for the children to be rescued.
