Fire Kills 19-Month Old Twins

A deadly fire in Walker county killed 19 month old twins — a little boy and a little girl. Their father, Darrin Williams, was taken to intensive care — but he’s expected to survive. The fire broke out Monday evening in the Manchester community, north of Jasper. The mother and two older kids had gone to the store when the fire started. The twins were apparently playing in the living room — their dad left to use the bathroom. When he came back, he said the couch was on fire — he tried to pull it out — and when he stepped outside to pull the sofa, flames spread and the house was engulfed. The twins were trapped. The coroner called it a terrible scene.
