ABILENE, Kan. (AP) _ Authorities say three children are dead after a weekend fire swept their Abilene home.
Abilene Police Chief Bryan Dunlap said Monday that the mother of the children, Diane Baquero, ``was in close proximity to the home studying for a test'' when the fire broke out at 11 p.m. Saturday. In a news release, Dunlap said the fire appears to have been accidental but the exact cause is unknown.
