CONYERS, Ga. (January 9, 2013)—Four children including an infant are dead after rescuers tried to save them from a fire in a duplex Tuesday night in Conyers, Ga., east of Atlanta.
Police say another child, who is 6, survived after his mother threw him from a second floor window.
He suffered an injured shoulder in the fall.
Glenn Allen, a spokesman for Georgia's fire commissioner, told The Associated Press the mother was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta with second- and third-degree burns.
Allen says seven people were in the home: a grandmother, the mother and five children.
Conyers police Major Mike Waters told reporters the children who died range in age from the infant to 7 years old.
Allen said there's no indication to what caused the fire.
