GLENARDEN, Md. (AP) - An 11-year-old girl has died as a result of a fire that killed her father and two of her three sisters at a home in Glenarden.

Prince George's County fire officials say 11-year-old Daijah Price died late Friday night at Children's National Medical Center in Washington.

Daijah did not have a pulse when she was pulled from the burning home early Thursday morning, but paramedics were able to revive her.

The fire also killed her father, Darrell Price, and two sisters, 8-year-old Tania and 4-year-old Patrice. Her mother and Tania's twin sister suffered less serious injuries and have since been released from the hospital.

Officials say the fire was accidental and that the cause was electrical in nature.

 

The family now has to prepare for four funerals. 

The family asks donations to be sent to any Capital One Bank attention: Teresa Myles.
