Two children killed in fire on Manitoba reserve

Two children were killed in a fire on the Opaskwayak Cree Nation in Manitoba on Tuesday, CBC News reports.

A wooden garden shed that was being used to store tools and propane tanks caught fire, trapping the children. By the time firefighters arrived, it was too late to save them.

The shed was on the lot of a home that burned down a few weeks ago. It was located near a playground.
