A municipal official reported just before noon on Monday that two more children who were injured in the Dartmouth Avenue fire over the weekend had passed away from their injuries at Oishei Children’s Hospital.
The fire broke out at 7:30 a.m. Saturday in a home on Dartmouth in Buffalo’s LaSalle district, killing five children aged two to ten.
Later Saturday, authorities said that three little girls, ages 7, 8, and 10, had been found dead.
Three children, a girl aged four, a boy aged two, and an infant aged seven months, were transferred to Oishei for medical attention after suffering injuries. After being taken to the hospital, the two older children were pronounced dead, according to Mayor Byron Brown’s spokesperson Michael DeGeorge.
The baby is no longer under Oishei’s care. Apparently, the kids were all related.
Due to the severity of her second-degree burns, their grandmother is still in serious condition at Erie County Medical Center.
According to DeGeorge, the incident was determined to be unintentional by Buffalo’s fire department. The fire department initially reported that the blaze started in the dining room.
The identities of those who perished in the fire have not been revealed by authorities.
