Two young children died in a mobile home fire in western Indiana, authorities say.

Three-year-old Athena Holdbrook and three-month-old Aries Romine died in the fire Wednesday night in Northview Country Estates on the outskirts of Brazil, Clay County Coroner Nick French said.

Both children died from smoke inhalation, French said. They were pronounced dead at the scene.

“I tried to get in through the front door, but the heat was overwhelming and the smoke was overwhelming. It was like I was being pushed outside. I tried to get back in twice, but I couldn’t get in. I couldn’t do anything but kneel down and pray Muhammad said.

“It was horrible to see,” added neighbor Leeann Chandler, “knowing they were still there and there was nothing we could do.”
