Three Louisiana children were tragically killed in a fire that took place in a mobile home on Christmas morning. It happened at around 2:30AM.

The children’s father was also left with serious injuries as a result of the devastating incident.

As reported by The Blaze:

State Fire Marshal’s Office spokesman Mike Delaune says a 12-year-old girl, an 11-year-old boy and a 9-year-old boy died at the Whispering Oaks Trailer Park in Houma.

Houma Fire Inspector Mike Millet says the trailer was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived after 1:30 a.m. Wednesday.

He says the children’s father rescued one child, but was unable to get the other three because the fire spread so quickly.

Eight people were inside the trailer when the fire started — everyone present was relatives celebrating Christmas.

It is unclear, at this time, what caused the fire. We will keep you up-to-date on the situation as news breaks.
