Authorities say five young siblings have died after a fire erupted in a home in northern France.



Paris: Authorities say five young siblings have died after a fire erupted in a home in northern France.

Rescue team official Thierry Oberlin told France-2 TV today that the children`s father escaped the inferno late yesterday in the town of Saint Quentin, about 150 kilometres north of Paris.

Oberlin says the father, who reportedly sustained light burns, contacted a neighbour who alerted authorities.
French media, citing unidentified local authorities, reported that the children were aged 2 to 10. A top local government official did not immediately respond to messages.
Separately, authorities said another fire erupted overnight in the northern Paris suburb of Aubervilliers, killing three people and injuring 13.
