5 including 3 children killed by Ohio fire


Akron (US): Five people, including three children, died in an early morning fire Monday in northern Ohio. The fire also left four others injured, authorities said. Two adults and three children were killed, the Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office said. Four people were taken to hospitals, the fire department said. Their conditions were not known.
