PERRY COUNTY — Three children under the age of 12 are dead after a fire broke out at a home in southern Indiana.

The fire was reported at 5:15 a.m. CST and was out by 6:45 a.m at a house in the 1000 block of 15th Street in Tell City.

The Indiana Department of Homeland Security says multiple people were inside the home when the fire broke out. Three children died as a result of that fire. It is unclear how many other people were able to get out of the home safely or if there were any other injuries.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation by the Indiana State Fire Marshal.
