HALIFAX: Seven children, all members of a Syrian family who arrived in Canada about two years ago, died in an early morning fire on Tuesday that witnesses said quickly engulfed a home in a Halifax suburb.
A woman who lives next door said the children ranged in age from 3 months to 17-years-old.
A man and woman remained in hospital, the man with life-threatening injuries. The woman was expected to survive her injuries.
