We have a sad story to report from Brooklyn today, as a fire ravaged a home and killed 7 children in the process. Officials have determined that a hot plate used to maintain heat within food was not turned off properly and caused the fire. Two others are in critical condition according to CNN. One of the individuals is the children’s mother and the other is a surviving child. There were no smoke detectors to warn the family of looming danger. For this reason, the fire was free to consume the first floor and leap to the second where the family was lying unbeknownst to the flames. Over 100 firefighters responded to tame the fire, but the 7 youth could not be saved.
