    FLINT, Mich. - Authorities say a fire that apparently started after a father fell asleep while cooking killed four young children in a Flint, Mich., home.

    Fire Battalion Chief Andy Graves told The Flint Journal newspaper that the fire started at about 11 p.m. Saturday in the kitchen of the town house.

    He says the 28-year-old father of the one of the children who was baby-sitting for the group apparently dozed off while cooking. A neighbor saw smoke and flames coming from the home and banged on the door to wake the occupants.

    Graves says the father was able to escape through a first-floor window, but none of the children got out. The children ranged in age from 1 to 4 years old.

    I wonder why this dad couldn't get to the kids.
