PRATT, Kan. (AP) -- The two children killed in a south-central Kansas house fire have been identified as 23-month-old twin boys.

KAKE-TV reports the Pratt Police Department said in release Tuesday the twins were inside the burning home when firefighters arrived Monday afternoon.

The twins were identified as Jayce and Jasper Ibarra, who would have turned 2 years old in January.

Their mother, 24-year-old Destry Ibarra, escaped from the house. She was reported to be in good condition Tuesday in the burn unit at Via Christ-St. Francis hospital in Wichita. Police say the children's father was not home when the fire broke out.

The Kansas Fire Marshal is working with police to determine the cause of the blaze.
