A house fire has killed two people in east El Paso this morning. It happened in the 10-thousand, 700 block of Forest Ridge Lane. At least 15 fire units were at the scene.
The mother in the home was able to save her four-year-old daughter by lowering her from the second story window then jumping out herself. But the father and other daughter,7, perished at the scene.
The mother suffered third-degree burns and had to be taken to a burn center in Lubbock. While fire investigators are not sure how it started, they believe it was accidental.
