Easter Morning Fire Kills a Mother and her Daughters

FRANKLIN, N.H. (AP) _ An investigation continues into the cause
of an Easter morning fire that killed a New Hampshire mother and
her two young daughters.
Fire officials in Franklin identify the victims as Beth
MacDonald and her daughters, 11-year-old Molly and 9-year-old
Jenny. They say the girls had spent the night in a 2 1/2-story
carriage house, just outside the family's home, after decorating it
for Easter.
Authorities say the girls' parents woke at about 5 a.m. to the
smell of smoke, and that the mother rushed into the building to try
and save the children while her husband called 911.
