6 dead in Baltimore fire

A fire killed six people in Baltimore, Maryland, Tuesday morning, authorities said.

The blaze at a two-story home in East Baltimore was reported just before 5 a.m., said Kevin Cartwright, a Baltimore Fire Department spokesman.

Firefighters entered the home but had to evacuate because of the fast-moving fire. After extinguishing the blaze, firefighters entered the home again and found five bodies. A sixth victim was found later, Cartwright said. Some of the victims were children, he said, but did not give a number. The relationship between the victims was unknown.

      LOL! There isn't any such thing as a 'god'. If there was, it wouldn't have let people die like this.

    People of Baltimore,
    This is a sad loss of life.It needs to be investigated for arson.
    Why the people were unable to get out a top floor window escapes me.

    wooaahh, gotta love your ferocious defense. Eas on him, not all athiests are stupid, (i personally would'nt claim him, hes not exactly a brainiac) . Remember, he has no faith, he cant grab it, or see it so his limited capabilities render him unable to accept what he cant feel with his senses, which are also limited im sure. I bet the chilean miners have no athiests amongst them, at least not anymore.
