MULGA, Ala. (AP) – Authorities say two toddlers have died in a fire at a mobile home in Alabama.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said the 1-year-old and 2-year-old died in the fire near Mulga early Tuesday. Capt. David Agee said deputies and firefighters sent to the scene had discovered the trailer fully engulfed in flames.

Agee says an adult who tried to save the children wasn’t able to reach them because of the flames.

The State Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the blaze.

Mulga is roughly 12 miles west of Birmingham.
