GALVESTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Two children died after an apartment fire near 22nd Street and Avenue K in Galveston around 2:30 a.m. Saturday.

According to authorities, when crews arrived they searched the home and found two children located in the same room together.

According to Asst. Chief Michael Varela, the two children, both under five, were critically injured in the fire and taken to UTMB Health Trauma Center at John Sealy Hospital. Both children died at the hospital.

Authorities say the children's dad was home and was able to get out uninjured. He was also treated at the hospital.

The Galveston Fire Department said heavy smoke and fire was located on the second floor leaving a lot of damage throughout the home.

A neighbor of the family, Warren, said he heard a beating on his back door as he was headed to bed. Warren thought he was about to be robbed, so he talked through his door, and the person on the other side said to call the fire department because his neighbor's house was burning.

Warren said the mom was not home at the time of the fire and when she did arrive at the home she was screaming.


James, whose home connects to the one that was on fire, said that a neighbor ran to his house and said that there was a fire next-door.

James said the children in the burning home where his cousin and niece. He also went to the hospital to get checked. James said he has not spoken with the family.

The fire marshal is investigating what caused the fire.
