Three children tragically killed in house fire

Before 9:30 p.m. Friday, a neighbor called 911 after a domestic disturbance and noticed smoke and flames coming from the windows of a home on Woodwind Drive in Paulding County, Georgia.

Police said seven children were inside the home when the fire broke out.

Authorities said it was initially reported that a woman inside the house tried to stab the resident, and when the call was made, the house was on fire and the resident was inside.

When firefighters arrived at the home, they found two unresponsive young children.

A baby and another child between the ages of 3 and 5 were found with burns at the top of the stairs inside the house, police said.

A third boy, aged 5 to 6, was airlifted to Grady Hospital with 75 per cent burns, according to police.

A fourth child, aged 7-8, was taken to Wellstar Cobb Hospital.

Police also said three other boys, aged between 14 and 16, escaped the fire by jumping from a second-floor window.


One child suffered an ankle injury, while the other two were uninjured.

Sheriff’s deputies arrested the child’s mother Brister after finding her safe in the backyard of her home.

She was charged with two counts of manslaughter, but police said more charges could be brought as the investigation progresses.

The investigation is being led by the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the state fire chief’s office.
