HOUSTON (AP) - Houston fire officials say 10 children have been taken to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries and smoke inhalation after a house fire.

The blaze Monday on the city’s northeast side was brought under control less than 20 minutes after firefighters responded shortly after 5:30 a.m.

Brian Robertson says he woke to the screams of his wife and the children, ages 4 to 16. Flames were coming from one of the children’s rooms.

He says most of the children managed to escape although his oldest daughter and a nephew had to be lifted and passed through a broken window.

By the time firefighters arrived, everyone was out of the house.

Arson investigators are working to determine a cause of the blaze.
