INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An Indianapolis Fire Department spokeswoman says the two children who survived a fire that killed two of their siblings and their parents are hanging on to life at an Indianapolis hospital.

Capt. Rita Reith (right) says the 14-year-old girl and 6-year-old boy remained in "extreme critical condition" late Sunday morning at Riley Hospital for Children.

The fire that swept through their family's small home Sunday killed 47-year-old Lionel "Leo" Guerra; his 33-year-old wife, Brandy Mae; their 11-year-old son, Esteban, and 8-year-old daughter, Blanquita.

Reith says investigators have not found the cause or place of origin for the fire. She says they also have not found any smoke detectors in the home.
