Fire Claims the Lives of Three Children
HARGILL — A fire claimed the lives of three small children and left the parents injured with burns on Sunday morning on Gill Avenue. Investigators report that two trailers went up in flames to took the lives of a 15 day-old baby, a 1 year-old and a 3 year-old child with the parents surviving but leaving them injured. Hidalgo County Fire Marshals and sheriff deputies are investigating the cause, but so far they don't suspect arson as a motive. They believe the cause may be the result of faulty electrical work which is common in many local colonias.
