Five children, including 1-year-old twins, died in a late-night fire that swept through an OH house after neighbors were awakened by a loud boom, firefighters said Monday.

Most of the damage was on the home's first floor, leading investigators to believe that's where the fire started, Wright said. They were given CPR and taken to a nearby hospital, but they later died there from their injuries. They ranged in age from 1 to 9, the youngest being twins.

Firefighters say five children were in the house at the time.

Firefighters say the woman jumped from a second-floor window and was the only survivor of the blaze in Youngstown.

Her boyfriend, Justin Viera, said flames were shooting out of the first floor windows.
