Two Harnett County children, home alone, die in fire

CAMERON, N.C. (AP) -- Authorities are investigating a mobile home fire that killed two young children who were home without supervision. The Harnett County Sheriff's Office said Friday they found the bodies of 20-month-old Kaliyah Simmons and 3-year-old Ariana Squire Simmons. A 6-year-old child, Janaya Squires, escaped the flames with minor injuries. Investigators said the children's mother had left the home late Thursday night to drive her mother to her house two miles away. Twenty-four-year-old Echo Simmons returned to find her home on fire. Authorities are investigating the cause of the fire. (Copyright 2008 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
