Mother, 3 children killed in NYC house fire; others critical

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) -- A fire official says a mother and three children -- ages 11, 7 and 3 -- have died in fast-moving New York City house fire.
   
New York Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro says the woman and children were killed around 2:30 a.m. Monday at a home in Brooklyn's Sheepshead Bay neighborhood.
   
The commissioner says the children's father and two teenagers are in critical condition.
   
He says firefighters arrived about 2 minutes after getting the call from a neighbor and the fire was already "consuming" all three floors of the building.
 
Nigro says the fire was accidental but the cause has not yet been pinpointed.
