GREENSBORO, N.C. — Officials say five children have died from injuries in a weekend fire in North Carolina.
Two children died Saturday after the blaze at a Greensboro apartment.
A nursing supervisor at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center told local media three children died Sunday at Brenner Children's Hospital in Winston-Salem.
Greensboro Assistant Fire Chief Dwayne Church said in a news release Monday the children ranged in age from 18 months to 9 years-old. Their names have not been released.
It took Greensboro firefighters 25 minutes to extinguish the flames around 4 a.m. Saturday. Church said a news conference is scheduled Monday afternoon to discuss the fire's cause.
Church says he doesn't know if there were working smoke detectors in the home.
A man was treated at a Greensboro hospital and released.
