BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – Authorities say a large tree crashed into a home in Birmingham, Alabama, killing two young children and injuring at least three other people.

Birmingham Fire and Rescue says it was called shortly after 5:30 p.m. to the home off Interstate 59/20 in that central Alabama city.

Fire Battalion Chief Sebastian Carrillo told emergency responders found a massive tree had smashed into the brick home.

He said two children, a 3-year-old and a 3-month-old infant, were pronounced dead and an 11-year-old child suffered serious injuries.

He said a woman also was taken to a hospital and rescuers were seeking to pull another woman from the home Thursday evening.
