JEFFERSON COUNTY — An early morning fire in west Jefferson County has claimed the lives of two children.
On Tuesday at approximately 12:19 a.m., Jefferson County Deputies and Birmingport Fire and Rescue were dispatched to 1491 Little River Trail in Mulga, Alabama, according to Capt. David Agee of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.
First responders found that the home was fully engulfed in flames. A 2-year-old girl and a 1-year-old boy died in the mobile home fire.
An adult tried to save his children, but was unable to reach them due to the intensity of the fire, Agee said.
Firefighters were able to locate the remains of the children.
The fire is being investigated by the Alabama State Fire Marshals Office.
