San Bernardino County house Fire - 2 Children dead, 2 others injured

Two young boys have died and two other people have been hurt in a house fire in San Bernardino County.

Fire officials say the blaze erupted around midnight Friday in Rialto, 50 miles east of Los Angeles.
City fire spokesman Matt Payne says firefighters found flames coming through the roof. He says they took a 4-year-old boy and a 5-year-old boy from a bedroom in a converted garage but the boys died at a hospital.
Payne says two adults and a 1-year-old girl already were out of the house when firefighters arrived.
The 1-year-old suffered smoke inhalation and a 54-year-old man had second-degree burns.
Payne says both are hospitalized in stable condition.
A woman who fled the house was not hurt.
The fire was doused in 26 minutes.
