Three Children Die In NC Mobile Home Fire

Investigators are trying to determine what caused a mobile home fire that killed three children and an adult in St. Paul, North Carolina.

Authorities said 40-year-old Terry Glover, along with his two children, 7-year-old Jalen and 11-year-old Essence, died in the fire early Sunday. His girlfriend's 1-year-old granddaughter, Van Savannah Johnson, also died.

Robeson County Sheriff Kenneth Sealey said Glover smelled smoke
when he arrived home from work. The children's mother, Van Ballard,
was asleep on the couch.

Glover told everyone to get out of the home and rescued one child. He went back in to rescue the other children but was overcome with smoke.

Three children survived the blaze.

Their mother was too distraught to speak with authorities about what may have caused the fire.
