CHESTER, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say a man and an 8-year-old died in a Pennsylvania fire that also critically injured a 4-year-old.

Chester fire department units called to the building in Chester at about 3 a.m. Sunday reported smoke coming from the second floor.

Commissioner William Rigby says firefighters pulled the two children from the building and took them to a hospital, where the eldest child died.
