WEBSTER, Texas — The fire started in the attic above the bedroom where three little boys slept. Within moments, it had consumed everything in its path, leaving two children dead and a third on life support, devastating their family and reducing a Webster apartment building to rubble.

The victims' next-door neighbor Brandon Moore said he could only watch helplessly as the trapped children screamed for help.
