I went to school with the parents........Very sad
A three-alarm house fire in the town of Fredonia killed two children Sunday morning.
Flames erupted at 160 Water Street just after 4 o'clock. When Fredonia firefighters involved, the house was fully engulfed.
Two parents and a child were able to escape with injuries prior to the fire department's arrival. Two other children were still trapped inside on the upper floor.
Dunkirk and Brocton firefighters were called in to assist Fredonia. Firefighters were unable to enter the house and rescue the children due to very heavy flames and thick smoke. It took the three departments together over two hours to get the fire under control.
The names and ages of the victims, both living and dead, are not being released at this time.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation byt the Chautauqua County Sheriff's Fire Investigation team. The house has been declared a total loss.
