Six Filipinos, including three young children and a pregnant woman, died in a fire that destroyed an apartment complex in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
A report on the incident said the fire broke out at 9am on Saturday.
Two adults, including a pregnant woman died, while the children who perished were recorded as a six-year-old boy, a six-year-old girl and a one-year-old infant.
Faulty electrical wiring is being looked into as the cause of the fire – police said that steel frames that protected the house prevented the victims from exiting the home quickly.
The Department of Foreign Affairs has not released the names of the victims as of this posting.
