DAVIDSON, Okla. (KSWO) - Three children died in an overnight fire on January 29, officials confirmed Monday.

UPDATE 4:20 p.m.: Assistant State Fire Marshal James Fullingim has released officials details into the fatal overnight fire in Davidson.

According to the release, the fire was initially reported around 10 p.m. on Sunday night. Firefighters were initially told one child was possibly trapped inside.

Crews from Davidson and Frederick responded to the scene and found the residence engulfed in flames along with a vehicle and grass.

The home was deemed to be unsurvivable by crews who proceeded to stop the grass fire from spreading to another nearby home, while beginning to douse the house flames.

Fullingim says six people were inside the home at the time of the fire. Three children died in the blaze, a fourth was transported to the burn unit at Parkland Hospital in Dallas. Two adults escaped with minor burns.

The release says the dead are all minor children and the names and ages of the victims are not being released at this time.

Investigators are looking into the fire, but at this time have “no indication” the cause of the fire was criminal in nature.

A GoFundMe has been started to help the family. You can donate by clicking here.
