Two Children Die in House Fire in Sheboygan Falls

Police say two children have died in a house fire in Sheboygan Falls near 5th & Western Avenue.  A third child is in critical condition. One other child was unharmed.

Officials said an 11-year-old child alerted the other children of the fire.  A 9-year-old was able to escape the home and met firefighters outside.  A brave 11-year-old child re-entered the home in an attempt to locate the other two children – ages 10 and 7.  Firefighters located the 7, 10 and 11-year-old children in an upstairs room.  The 7-year-old died at St. Nicholas Hospital in Sheboygan.  The 10 and 11-year-olds were taken by helicopter to Children’s Hospital in Wauwatosa.

Officials said the 11-year-old died Wednesday morning. Police also said late Wednesday morning that the 10-year-old is in critical condition.

The children are believed to be siblings.  The cause of the fire is under investigation.
