6 people have been killed in a house fire in the Moniteau County town of California. All but one are children. Firefighters report the children range in age from eight months to eleven years. All were Hispanic. Authorities say language difficulties hampered the response, as the one man to escape the fire ran almost a mile to get help from a Spanish-speaking friend. It’s believed the fire was electrical in origin.
