ROSWELL (KSMX)- A New Mexico house fire killed an infant and led two other young children to be taken to a hospital, firefighters said Sunday.

Roswell Fire Department spokesman Todd Wildermuth said the cause of the fire is under investigation but it broke out at a home in the southeast New Mexican city around 11 a.m.

Emergency responders took the infant to a hospital, where the child was pronounced dead. A 3-year-old and a 4-year-old were also taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Wildermuth did not offer further details about the children or whether any adults were in the home.
