Kids safe, parents seriously injured in Selma fire
SELMA, Calif. (KFSN) -- A family of five woke up to smoke and flames in their home early Friday morning. Fire investigators are looking into what caused that fire. It happened around 6:45 a.m. in the area of Leonard and Dinuba near Selma.
Investigators say when they arrived on scene, the entire family had made it out of the mobile home safely. The oldest child, a 14-year-old, helped get her nine-year-old brother and one-year-old sister out of the home safely. Their father and mother were seriously injured trying to get out.
"My mom was saying, 'the kids take care of my kids,' and my dad's like, 'I wish I die I wish my family is alive,;" said Tania Bustos.
Investigators are looking into the cause of the fire. While the parents are in the hospital, the three children are being cared for by neighbors.
