The children’s mother, Jennifer Taylor, 38, and 6-year-old Joshua reportedly jumped from a second story window. They were taken to the hospital in critical but stable condition.
Raymond Taylor, 16, escaped and was treated for smoke inhalation.
According to WPXI, the family’s 1-year-old dog died in the fire.
Witnesses say screams could be heard from inside the home.
WPXI reports that neighbors tried to get into the home, but the doors were locked. They broke a window, but there was too much smoke inside.
