Mom Gives Birth to New Child as Her Two Kids Tragically Die in Fire at Home

An Inland Empire community is reeling from the tragic death of two young children who died in an apartment fire while their mom was giving birth to her third child at a hospital.

Aged two and six, the young siblings were at home with their father, who is critically injured and at a hospital, when the fire broke out. The apartment where the family was living was a bank-owned property that has been cited for several safety violations. Authorities believe the family might have been living in the property illegally, as it has been deemed too unsafe for anyone to live in.
