A house fire in Saginaw has sent three children to the hospital.

A 3-year-old child and two 1-year-old twins were taken to an area hospital. Those children are believed to have suffered smoke inhalation. Although the children are said to be alright, they have been transferred to Hurley Medical Center's burn unit.

At last check, the children were said to be in stable condition.

There were five children at home at the time of the blaze. Two were able to get out safely by themselves. Three children were rescued from the home by fire crews. One of the two children who made it out on their own, aged 4, suffered a burnt hand.

The fire happened around 7 a.m. Wednesday at a home on William Street near S. Mason street on the city's west side.

There is no word on the extent of damages to the home.
