Two Dead, Five Injured In Group Home Fire
Two people died and five suffered burn injuries in a fire that set a Santa Ana home ablaze Wednesday morning.
The fire, which was reported around 5:30 a.m., spread from a nearby garage to a four-bedroom "licensed group home," fire officials told NBC Los Angeles.
"We do have two fatalities inside, and we do have five burn patients," Steve Concialdi, spokesman for of the Orange County Fire Authority told KTLA. "Two of those burn patients were critical, three of those were minor."
There were earlier reports that two children were among those who died in the fire, but NBC Los Angeles has since confirmed that there were no minors in the home. Names and ages of the victims have not been released yet.
