WILKINSBURG, Pa. (AP) - Two children were hospitalized, one in critical condition, after they were found unresponsive in a western Pennsylvania home, authorities said.

Local police officers and fire department units were sent to a Wilkinsburg home just after 7:30 a.m. Wednesday and found an unresponsive 5-year-old girl, Allegheny County police said.

Officers learned that a 5-year-old boy had been found unresponsive and was taken to a hospital just before 1:45 a.m. Wednesday, police said.

The boy is listed in critical condition and the girl is in stable condition. Fire department personnel checked for the presence of carbon monoxide but found none.

County detectives were called to investigate. They said there were no obvious signs of trauma and investigators are working with hospital officials and the county crime lab to determine what caused the children to become unresponsive.
