    HOUSTON -- At least two children were killed in a fire at a west Houston day care center Thursday, according to the Houston Fire Department.

    Firefighters pulled a total of seven children from the burning building at Crest Park and Waypark.

    A fire swept through a home daycare center Thursday, killing three children and injuring four others, fire officials said.

    The blaze broke out at Jackie's Child Care, which was being run out of a house in western Houston, Assistant Fire Chief Bill Barry said.

    Firefighters arriving at the scene found two children who had been injured outside the home and five more trapped inside. They rescued those inside and took all seven children to four Houston hospitals. The children ranged in age from 18 months to 3 years old.

    Three of the children died after being taken to a hospital, Barry said. No other information was immediately available on those who died or the conditions of those injured, but fire department spokesman Rick Flanagan told the Houston Chronicle that cardiopulmonary resuscitation was being performed on four children as they were being taken to the hospital.

    just watched the Fox Houston news online- 2 of the toddlers remain in the hospital in Houston and 2 are being moved to the Burn Center in Galveston. They wanted to fly them to Galveston but there is too much fog.

    Please pray for the 4 survivors and their families.

    Victims in Child Care Center Fire Identified

    Published : Friday, 25 Feb 2011, 11:14 AM CST

    Two of the victims were identified as Elizabeth Kojah and Kendall Stradford -- both were 20 months old. The third victim’s identity is still being withheld.

    Doctors in Galveston today administered oxygen to prevent brain damage in two children critically burned in a Houston day care home fire that claimed three young lives.

    The children at Shriners Children's Hospital remained in critical but stable condition today, said Dr. David Herndon, chief surgeon. Two other children burned in the fire were hospitalized elsewhere.

    Herndon said the oxygen could help stave off brain damage and lung inflammation from carbon monoxide and other toxic gases in smoke the children had breathed. Lung inflammation can lead to infection, he said.

    The two children are burned on less than one-third of their body, Herndon said.

    "We will be treating their burns with topical anti-microbials and they will require surgery, artificial skin and dressings," Herndon said, adding that severely burned children typically require multiple surgeries as they age to loosen inflexible scar tissue that inhibits growth.

    Source: Child Care Operator Under Investigation
    Updated: Friday, 25 Feb 2011, 3:40 PM CST
    Published : Friday, 25 Feb 2011, 3:27 PM CST

    An important question has arisen following a childcare center fire that claimed the lives of three children in West Houston:

    Was the operator of that child care center at the home during the fire? That’s what Houston Fire Department investigators are looking into, according to sources close to FOX 26 News.
