Omaha authorities released the names of the two children killed in a fire at the Maplewood Estates Mobile Home Park Wednesday morning as 3 year old Gabriel and 3 month old Brandon Rodriguez. One-year old Adrianna Rodriguez and the children’s mother, 18 year old Champaine Harn were injured in the fire.
Neighbors say they tried to rescue the children inside but the flames were too intense. It took firefighters about a half an hour to get the fire under control.
The Omaha Professional Fire Fighters Association set up a fire fatality benefit fund to help the family. Donations can be made to the Omaha Fire Fighters Credit Union or through the American Red Cross.
