Three killed in overnight fire

Two adults and a child died overnight after a fire ravaged their home in Köping, police said on Wednesday.

“The fire broke out during the night and when the firemen arrived it was too late, the people were already dead. The house is completely destroyed,” said Karin Isaksson, a police spokeswoman at Köping, west of Stockholm.

“We don’t have any detail on the age of the victims and we don’t know yet if they were related to each other. It’s too early to say,” Isaksson said.
