The children were pronounced dead at the scene after authorities located their bodies amid the debris of the residence, Montgomery County sheriff's Lt. Scott Spencer said.

The Montgomery County Fire Marshal's Office said the children who died were Terrance "TJ" Mitchell, 13; Kaila Mitchell, 6; and Kyle Mitchell, 5.

"We've moved from a rescue operation to a search and recovery", Spencer said.

A photo of the children involved in the fire was given to Eyewitness News by a family member.
