GLENARDEN, Md. (CBSDC) — The man and two children who were killed in Thursday’s early morning house fire in Glenarden have been identified, and an 11-year-old who was revived after being pulled from the home without a pulse remains in grave condition.

The blaze began around 4 a.m. in 8600 block of Leslie Avenue. Authorities have since confirmed that there was not a smoke detector in the single-story house and that the cause of the blaze was electrical in nature.

Thirty-six-year-old Darrell Terrance Price Jr., 8-year-old Tania Monae Jeanita Price and 4-year-old Patrice Price were killed. The 11-year-old female who was revived after being carried from the home by first responders remains in critical condition and her prognosis is not favorable for recovery, according to the Prince George’s County Fire and EMS Department.

A 33-year-old female and an 8-year-old female, twin sister to Tania, remain hospitalized due to smoke inhalation and other minor injuries. They reportedly escaped the flames through a window.
