1 girl dead, 1 critical after St. Louis fire

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A 9-year-old girl is dead and a 6-year-old girl is critically injured after a St. Louis home caught fire.

The blaze was reported just after 5 a.m. Friday on the city's north side. Firefighters heard screams and were able to pull the girls from the home and take them to a hospital.

Names of the children have not been released. Their relationship wasn't immediately clear.

Two adults got out of the home safely.
