3 kids killed by fire they caused in Saudi

Fire guts store and house

Three children were charred to death in a fire that gutted their house in Saudi Arabia and officials said the kids had caused the blaze.

A civil defence spokesman, quoted by Ajel newspaper, said the fire started in a store room and spread to the adjoining house in the Southern Najran province.

He said the blaze destroyed most of the store and the house and killed three children who were on their own at home on Friday morning. He did not mention their ages and nationalities.
