BRAZIL, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say a young woman, her baby and another child have died in a house fire in Indiana. A fourth person has been hospitalized.

Assistant Brazil police chief Dennis Archer tells The Brazil Times the four were taken to a hospital after the Monday night fire at the two-story home. No information has been released about the condition of the fourth person or the fire’s possible cause.

The fire department says an 18-year-old woman died. The newspaper says the woman’s 4-month-old baby and a 4-year-old child also died.

The Associated Press left messages seeking information from Brazil authorities.

WTHI-TV reports officials believe a family comprising more than a dozen people lived at the home, but it is unclear how many were home.

Brazil is about 55 miles southwest of Indianapolis.
