BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say one person is dead and three children are hospitalized after an early-morning house fire in Birmingham.

A battalion fire chief, Sebastian Carrillo, tells news outlets that firefighters were called to a home that was on fire around 4:40 a.m. Thursday.

Firefighters found one person dead inside the structure. Carrillo says three children ranging in age from infancy to a teenager were rescued from the flames with serious injuries.

Two small children were taken to Children's of Alabama. The third person was taken to Princeton Hospital.
