Sioux Falls Fire Rescue have released the names of the three children who died in a House Fire in Sioux Falls Saturday morning.
They say 16-year-old Michael Hensely, 12-year-old Savannah Coon, and 6-year-old Olivia Coon were found in a single room on the second floor of the home at 1100 N. Main Avenue.
Two adults hospitalized for injuries as well.
Fire Rescue Chief Jim Sideras says firefighters felt helpless and frustrated. They'd tried to enter the home but were forced out because the heat was too great.
The blaze was reported about 8 a.m. When firefighters arrived, the home was already engulfed with flames shooting from nearly every west-side window on both floors.
