HOUSTON (AP) — Authorities continue investigating the cause of a fire in a suburban Houston home that killed a mother and her daughter and injured three others.

Firefighters responded to the fire early Saturday morning at a home in the suburb of Spring.

Authorities say a deputy constable who responded to the scene broke one of the home’s windows and helped rescue a boy inside the house.

Another boy and his father were also able to escape the fire but the mother and her daughter died.
