HALTOM CITY, Texas (AP) - Police have arrested a Haltom City woman after she and her three young daughters were burned in a house fire.
The mother, identified by neighbors and relatives as 29-year-old Alysha Green, was hospitalized and taken into custody yesterday on three charges of injury to a child with serious bodily harm. But police wouldn't confirm initial reports from fire officials that the woman doused the children with gasoline.
The young children, believed to be ages 2, 4 and 6, were taken to a Dallas hospital yesterday. Their conditions were not released.
Neighbor Raul Ponce told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that he and another neighbor pulled the two older children to safety and tried to rescue the 2-year-old.
Police Sergeant Terry Stayer told The Dallas Morning News that detectives weren't prepared to say how the fire started.
