Deadly Fire Traps Young Brothers


Neighbors attempt to rescue 9 and 11-year-old trapped in Michigan home, but can't overcome smoke and flames.

(WDIV/NBC News)  Two young boys are dead after a fire ripped through their Grosse Point, Michigan home.

The boys, 9 and 11 years old, were trapped when flames erupted Monday morning.

The boys’ mother was running errands, and their father was away at his first day on a job. The boys went to an upstairs room of the home when the fire started. That is where they died.

It’s believed the boys called their mother, who rushed back home but couldn’t get inside.
