ORLANDO, Fla. - A house fire in Orlando killed a girl and sent her grandmother to the hospital with severe burns early Sunday, fire officials said.
Firefighters began fighting the fire at 5298 Lescot Lane around 5:50 a.m. where first responders found three people inside.
Firefighters found a girl inside who died in the fire, officials said. The girl's brother, who was also in the house, was able to escape.
The children's grandmother was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center with severe burns, firefighters said.
Investigators have not yet determined a cause of the blaze.
The fire destroyed the home and caused a portion of the roof to collapse.
No working smoke alarms were in the home or audible when firefighters arrived, officials said.
As part of community outreach, Orlando firefighters will be going door-to-door in the Lescot Lane neighborhood to install free fire alarms Monday.
