House fire injures 3 children in southern Gaza

Dec. 7, 2013 10:59 A.M. (Updated: Dec. 7, 2013 10:59 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Three children were hospitalized Friday evening following a house fire in the southern Gaza Strip.

Eyewitnesses told Ma'an they saw smoke rising from Amjad Omran's home in Khan Younis refugee camp before fire fighters arrived and contained the fire.

Three children from the family were taken to Nasser hospital in Khan Younis to be treated for smoke inhalation, locals added.

A knocked-over candle was the cause of the fire, a Ma'an reporter said.

Due to regular power cuts, candles are commonly used in Gaza as a source of light.
