ASHLAND, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say three children killed in an overnight house fire in rural north-central Ohio died from smoke inhalation.

Fire officials say three other people who were in the house have been hospitalized with what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries.

The State Fire Marshal's Office says the fire started on a front porch where there was an incubator.

The others injured included a 13-year-old boy.

The two-story house in Jeromesville was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived at the scene about 70 miles southwest of Cleveland.

At least six fire departments responded.
