According to Flint Police Chief Terence Green, the incident happened around 4:40 a.m.

A fourth child managed to escape the fire by climbing out a window before being taken to a local hospital. Her condition is currently unknown.

Fire Chief Raymond Barton said crews were hit by heavy flames on the ground floor of the home and thick smoke on the second floor.

Barton could not say if there were working smoke alarms in the home at the time of the fire.

Extended family members spoke to ABC12 about the tragedy with a cousin who chose not to give her name and said the mother and her family are the life of each party.

“It’s like an energy you’ve never seen before. That’s why it’s so sad to see the sunshine just… fade away. fade, yes.”

A close friend of the father’s described him as a “loving, open-minded protector” for over thirty years.

“He was a security guard at most bars in Flint. Real cool guy. Loved his kids,” Curtis Crawford said.

“I loved hanging out with them. I love doing everything he could for her.”

This is just the latest in a series of losses for the family, the cousin said.

“Our family is already small,” she said. “We lost a grandmother in 2019, and two months later we lost. Cousin in 2019. Then he lost a cousin a year later.”

Investigators from multiple agencies including the Flint Fire Department, Flint Police Department and Michigan State Police stayed on site to determine the cause of the incident.

This is the second deadly fire in Flint in the past nine days, as two boys died in a house fire on May 28.
