Children died of smoke inhalation

Two children killed in a fire in a remote Northwestern Ontario First Nations community earlier this month died of smoke inhalation. Both children, boys aged two and three, died in a house fire in the community on January 13th.  Nishnawbe-Aski police say a third child, a six-month-old girl, is reported to be doing well in the pediatric unit in London. Police say the cause of the fire is determined to be accidental with no foul play suspected.  The children's parents suffered no major injuries in the fire.
