Three Brothers Die in Gaza Fire

Three brothers, ages six, five and two, died Monday evening in a fire that broke out in their home in the central Gaza city of Deir Al-Balah. Their six-month-old brother was rescued but badly burned.

The fire was blamed on candles used to light the boys' room. Disruptions in electric service have been blamed on a lack of fuel for Gaza's power station.
