FALKVILLE, Ala. (AP) — A house fire in north Alabama has claimed the lives of a man and two children.
The Morgan County Sheriff's Office says the blaze broke out Sunday morning in Falkville.
Flames had engulfed the home by the time firefighters arrived, and photos showed fire shooting through the roof.
Coroner Jeff Chunn says a 44-year-old man was killed in the blaze along with two children ages 3 and 7. Authorities haven't released the victims' names.
But news outlets report that Morgan County School Superintendent Billy Hopkins identified the older child as a student at Falkville Elementary.
