Baltimore Weather, (AP) – Flames from a townhouse are Baltimore early Tuesday, killing three children and three adults and the flames spread to three other houses nearby, a fire official said.

Firefighters were called to the scene around 04:45 AM and found a brick house with two floors on fire, spokesman for the Baltimore Fire Department Kevin Cartwright said. Firefighters initially attacked the flames from the inside, but wind gusts intensified the fire and forced them to retreat, “said Cartwright. Wind gusts in the area at the time were between 30-40 mph, the National Weather Service reported.

Cartwright said after firefighters put out the fire, they searched the house and found the victims. He did not know their age or identity, but neighbors said the victims were an elderly couple, their granddaughter and her three children.

A few hours after the fire, Karen Lane stood outside the house next to his mother. Her parents’ house next to it was one of those damaged, but Lane’s mother and father escaped unharmed.

“God thank you, they came out alive,” Lane said.

Richard and Eleanor Satterfield lived in the house where the fire was reported with their granddaughter, tiara, and her three children, Lane said.

Charles Voisin Giddins said Satterfield had nice neighbors.

“She had just retired to work on the child care program,” said Giddins. “All it would do is sit on the porch in the morning and feed the birds, and watch his grandchildren.”

Shirley Braxton, who lives in a house damaged by fire, said her daughter opened the door and shouted that the house of their neighbors was on fire, The Baltimore Sun reported.

“I said, ‘Get my little son.” Y’all just come out of the house, “Braxton said.” The only thing I thought was just released. ”

Fire investigators and fire detectives were working to determine the cause of the fire. The victims were reportedly killed by smoke inhalation, although the Office of the State Medical Examiner will make the final decision, “said Cartwright. He did not know if the house had smoke alarms.

Fire Tuesday was one of the deadliest in Baltimore in recent years. In January, four people were killed in a fire, and May 2007, a townhouse shot killed eight in eastern Baltimore.

Fox 5 News:(The Huffington Post) — Pursuing the false illusion of New Black Panther, the conservative movement is rolling on the type of bait unapologetic racing generations incorporating the U.S. policy has seen in decades, if not.

But the press pretend otherwise.

Fox News (also known as the opposition party) openly and proudly dedicated to jaw-dropping episodes of demagogic race-rendered, and representing the President of the United States as an enemy of the whites who calmly progressive assembly of his army for a war of races “,” However, the press sits in silence, looking away, and decided uniformly that there is no story there.

Almost you can hear the justifications audible: “Well, it’s just that Fox Fox.” Or, “It’s just Rush being Rush.”

Sorry, but when the channel’s most-watched cable news relentlessly represents the president and his government of being the home of the racist get-whitey, is news. And having the most listened to radio talk show host in America claim that our first African-American president deliberately keeps the high unemployment in order to take revenge on white America – that is news too.

Period.

What Fox News, Limbaugh and the rest of the GOP machine noise are doing today in terms of race yielded no apology is a disgrace. How the press is handling the unfolding story is not much better.
