A mother and her two children have died after their mobile home in Waco caught on fire.

Firefighters who were called to the mobile home Thursday night found it ablaze with the woman and children trapped inside.

Neighbor Denise Miller tells the Waco Tribune-Herald that she could hear the mother crying for help inside.

A neighbor was able to pull one child out of a window. That child remains hospitalized in Dallas. Three firefighters also suffered second-degree burns.

The cause of the fire was not immediately clear. The victims' names were not released.
