Indiana fire kills 5 — house's windows barred

GARY, Ind. (AP) — Fire gutted a small house early Wednesday, killing three children and two adults, and authorities said burglar bars on the windows may have kept the victims from escaping.

The victims included a woman and her 1-year-old son and a man and his 9- and 12-year-old sons, the Lake County coroner's office said.
