A woman and two juveniles died after a fire that appears to be "suspicious in nature" broke out in Vallejo early Sunday morning, according to police.
The three victims were pulled from the house located in the area of the 2900 block of Georgia Street, but they were later pronounced dead, police said.
A Vallejo police officer was patrolling the neighborhood around 2:45 a.m. when he smelled smoke, according to police. As the officer arrived to the scene of the blaze, an 11-year-old girl flagged him down and said three other people were still inside the burning residence.
Officers tried to enter the house, "but the house was fully involved," police stated.
Firefighters eventually made their way into the home and pulled out three female victims, police said. One juvenile victim died at the scene. A second juvenile victim died at the hospital. The adult victim died at a burn unit.
The young girl who flagged down the officer suffered injuries, but she is expected to make a full recovery, according to police.
Investigators are trying to determine where and how the fire sparked, according to police.
Anyone with any information regarding the fire is encouraged to call Detective Yates and Detective Poyser of the Vallejo Police Department Detective Division at 707-648-4080.
