LA PORTE, Texas (AP) - Two juveniles have died in an early-morning house fire southeast of Houston.

La Porte police Sgt. John Krueger said in a statement that two adults and two children were able to escape the flames early Sunday. But attempts by officers to reach the two juveniles on the second floor were unsuccessful because of smoke and flames.

Police did not provide the ages and names of the two victims. The two officers who tried to reach the pair were later treated for smoke inhalation.

Firefighters later found the juveniles but one died at the scene and the second on the way to a hospital.

The cause of the fire wasn’t immediately known and the investigation is continuing.
