Brooklyn (NY) Fire Kills Dad, 2 Daughters

According to the New York Post:
A suspicious fire tore through a Brooklyn brownstone yesterday -- killing a father and two of his young daughters -- and sent at least one person jumping from a window to escape the flames.

The blaze broke out shortly before 5:30 p.m. on a stairwell between the second and third floors of the home on Putnam Avenue in Bushwick, and engulfed the rest of the structure.

A law-enforcement source said the fire was sparked by a child playing with matches.

Firefighters searching the top floor found the bodies of a 62-year-old man and his 14-year-old daughter.

His 3-year-old daughter was still alive, but later died at Woodhull Hospital.
