PARIS — Authorities say five young siblings have died after a fire erupted in a home in northern France.

Rescue team official Thierry Oberlin told France-2 TV Sunday that the children's father escaped the inferno late Saturday in the town of Saint Quentin, about 90 miles north of Paris.

Oberlin said the father — who reportedly sustained light burns — contacted a neighbor who alerted authorities.

French media, citing unidentified local authorities, reported that the children were ages 2 to 10. A top local government official did not respond to messages left by The Associated Press.

Separately, authorities said another fire erupted overnight in the northern Paris suburb of Aubervilliers, killing three people and injuring 13.
