7 children dead in Mexico City house fire

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Seven children are dead following a house fire in a poor Mexico City neighborhood.

The city prosecutors' office said Friday that six young children and one older child died in the early morning blaze in the Iztapalapa neighborhood.

The city prosecutor said the children were apparently left at home alone while their parents worked.

House fires in the city are often caused by attempts to heat dwellings using wood or charcoal fires, or faulty gas connections.
