A mother and her two small children -- a girl and a boy -- have died of injuries sustained in an early morning, two-alarm garden apartment fire in Precinct 6/Towson.

The victims are Bra Angah-McCray, 26; Aimee McCray, 4; and Adriel McCray, 3. All lived in the apartment in the 6300 block of Holly Lane, in the Anneslie area, where the fire occurred.

Engine 11 (Hillendale) and other Baltimore County Fire Department units responded at 4:34 a.m. to the apartment complex in the 6300 block of Holly Lane. Engine 11 found fire showing from the third floor.

Engine 11, Engine 1 (Towson) and Truck 1 (Towson) entered the apartment to attack the fire and search for victims. Because of the early morning hour, crews feared that people might be trapped. Engine 11 found the three victims -- unconscious and in critical condition -- in a bedroom.

EMS and Fire crews attempted to resuscitate the victims and transported them to local hospitals. The mother and one of the children were transported to University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center; the other child was transported to Greater Baltimore Medical Center. All three were pronounced dead at the hospitals.

One firefighter was transported to St. Joseph for treatment of non-lifethreatening injuries sustained in the fire.

An investigation by Baltimore County Police fire investigators is ongoing, but detectives say preliminary information indicates this is an accidental fire that originated in the kitchen area. Foul play is not suspected.

Due to extensive fire and water damage to the apartment complex, 16 residents were displaced from their homes.

About 40 BCoFD units responded to this fire.
