MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Fire department officials say a toaster oven was the cause of a Friday fire that killed two Montgomery children.

Montgomery Fire Department District Chief James Petrey told WSFA (http://bit.ly/1wphNxi ) that the toaster oven was being used in a bedroom.

One-month-old Ty’Leah Jackson and 3-year-old Tymothy Jackson, Jr. were killed in the blaze. Their 2-year-old sister survived, but is hospitalized in Birmingham.

The children’s father suffered severe burns as he tried to save the children.

Petrey says the toaster oven was not being used in the bedroom where the children were found.

Dolls and toys have been left as memorials outside the charred remains of the house in west Montgomery.
