Five of family, including 2 children charred to death after fire breaks out in house

Salem, Sep 04 (UNI) Five members of a family, including two children, were charred to death when a fire gutted their house at Narasothipatti near Kuranguchavadi here early on Friday.
Police said the deceased were identified as A Pushpa (40), her brother-in-law Karthik (38), his wife Maheswari (34), and the couple’s children Sarvesh (12) and Mukesh (9).
Preliminary investigations revealed that Pushpa’s husband Anbazhagan and his brother Karthik were running a sawmill business and both of their family members were living in the same house.
The fire broke out when the family members were sleeping. While three inmates managed to escape, seven others were trapped in the fire that engulfed the house.
On being alerted by the neighbours, the personnel of Tamil Nadu Fire and Rescue Services Department rushed to the spot and rescued two people. The charred bodies of five others were recovered from the house.
The bodies were removed to a government hospital, here for post-mortem.
Police said a short circuit could have caused the fire, but however, investigations were on multiple angles. Only after a detailed investigation by the forensic experts, the exact cause of the blaze could be ascertained.
District Collector SA Raman, Commissioner of Police T Senthil Kumar visited the spot and held inquiries.
