Three kids die in Ohio home fire

Three children were killed in a mobile home fire in Wheelersburg, Ohio, the Scioto County Sheriff's Department said Sunday. Two adults were also injured in the blaze, said Donya McClurg, a dispatcher with the sheriff's department.

The children were 11 months old, 2 years old and 4 years old, McClurg said. The cause of the fire is under investigation. Wheelersburg is on the Ohio River, about 113 miles east of Cincinnati, Ohio.

    CHRIST..MAS QUESTION
    I don't like having to ask, but is this a fictional story? When I heard it, I started questioning God's existance; and the ironic part is, I have always had unshakable faith. Because rocks and gas can't make animation alone-hearing, sight, taste, feeling, independent reason etc. Now connecting the story into it...How can a wise God let children die without any adult factor there to protect them–intervene. See, I believe that God only appears on Earth when a human alligns with the holy scriptures–so that they began living what it teaches. They are the fire fighters, the lawyers, the doctors (angels) I know that bad things happen to everyone; but I thought it was our own choices that do us in. And that our rescuers had to be true believers. Sometimes, there is no rescuer because there is no believer in God–and without faith in God, everyone is selfish–does the wrong thing, doesn't care etc. But I always thought, a wise God would somehow rescue children...when noone was around to do it (like a dog would bark and alert them–that happened to me, I was in a home where a fire started, I did not smell it..my dog did & started barking-So my dog saved my life & I put the fire out) Anyway, MAYBE THIS STORY WILL MAKE PEOPLE BE MORE CAREFUL AROUND THE HOLIDAYS OR IN GENERAL...ESPECIALLY WHERE EVER CHILDREN ARE
    ....WHY DON'T PEOPLE TALK MORE ABOUT BELIEF IN GOD OR CHRIST AROUND THIS HOLIDAY??
    INSTEAD OF ACCENTING A CALL IN RADIO STATION THAT WANTS TO GIVE PEOPLE PRESENTS OR CHARITY BECAUSE SOMETHING WENT WRONG IN THEIR LIVES?? (and yet the caring part is God acting and intervening)

    Sadly, the mother of these children lost both of her parents in a car accident several days later.
