MECHANICSVILLE, VA—An early morning fire sent three young children to the hospital after a fire broke inside a bedroom of their Mechanicsville home Thursday morning.

The fire broke out around 3 a.m. at a single-story home in the 8200 block of Bultaco Trail, near State Route 634.

A 9-month-old baby and a 7-year-old child were about to escape the blaze with their mother, but an 11-year-old child had to be rescued from the home by Sheriff's Deputies.

A deputy was able to break a bedroom window and pull the 11-year-old from the fire.

The 11-year-old suffered extensive smoke inhalation and remains hospitalized at VCU Medical Center. The 9-month-old baby and 7-year-old child were also taken to VCU Medical Center.

The 9-month-old was released from the hospital, but the two other children remain hospitalized.

The fire was contained to a bedroom, and crews were able to quickly extinguish the blaze.
