Police are investigating after a fire started at a home in Des Moines where two children were left unattended.
   The Des Moines Register reports the fire broke out Monday night. According to Des Moines police Sgt. Paul Parizek, a 6-year-old child and a 7-year-old child were left alone in their home when their mother went to visit a relative. Parizek says the children turned on the oven, which started a kitchen fire.
   The children were taken to a hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation. Police say their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
