Nev. mobile home fire kills 3 children, babysitter

PAHRUMP, Nev. (AP) -- Authorities in a rural area of Nevada say three young children and a babysitter were killed in a house fire, and at least four people were injured trying to rescue them.

Pahrump Fire Chief Scott Lewis tells The Associated Press that a fifth person was hurt escaping the 9:30 a.m. Wednesday blaze. Nye County Sheriff Tony DeMeo says all three boys killed in the fire were under age 4.

He says the 24-year-old female babysitter was on the telephone with Nye County emergency dispatchers when she died.

DeMeo says the intensity of the fire in the double-wide mobile home turned rescuers back.

The injured included three on- and off-duty sheriff's deputies and a firefighter.

Pahrump is about 60 miles west of Las Vegas.
