Police and fire departments in the British capital, London, reported that four children died on Thursday (16) in a fire that broke out in a house in a neighborhood in the southern suburbs of London.
Scotland Yard chief Rob Shepherd said in a statement that the cause of the tragedy in the Sutton area was “unknown” and “will be the subject of an investigation”.
According to the firefighters, the first teams that arrived at the scene encountered “heavy fire” throughout the ground floor of the property.
However, they were able to get in and out of the four children, who received CPR before being taken to two hospitals, where they were declared dead.
Police suspect the four minors are from the same family, and say they have not made any arrests related to the case.
About 60 firefighters were mobilized to fight the blaze, and were notified at 6:55 p.m. local time (3:55 p.m. Brasilia time).
“It was an incident that left everyone deeply sad,” said Andy Rowe, London’s fire chief.
