CONYERS, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say four children, including an infant, are dead after a house fire in the Atlanta area.

The fire started late Tuesday night at a duplex in Conyers, east of Atlanta. Conyers police Major Mike Waters tells Atlanta television station WSB-TV that another boy was injured when his mother threw him from a second-floor window to escape.

Conyers Police Chief Gene Wilson told WXIA-TV that officers arrived on the scene quickly after the fire was reported and tried unsuccessfully to put it out with handheld fire extinguishers.
