Two children died in a fire in a house on the Daesdonckseweg in Strijbeek in Brabant on Sunday.
A woman who lived there and a third child were able to escape from the house in time.
A police spokesperson speaks of a drama. The children of less than 10 years old are not women, but were staying with her. She is the grandmother of one of the two children who died. The other victim was a boyfriend.
The woman was injured in the fire, as well as the father of one of the children. He slept in a neighboring chalet and wanted to enter the burning house to save the children. Both were taken to the hospital by ambulance.
The emergency services received a report of the fire on Sunday around 00.25. After a while, the two remains were discovered in the home.
Nothing is yet known about the cause of the fire.
The fire brigade has discovered two remains in the almost burned-out wooden house. We assume that these are the two children. The storage is difficult because the house is no longer stable. Family of victims receives medical and psychological care from the GGD https://t.co/VQUZxhlw9dAvatar
