An early morning house fire in San Antonio killed three people and injured three others, the city’s fire chief said.
One woman died at the scene and two others — an adult and a child — later died at a hospital. The three people hospitalized were listed in critical condition, said San Antonio Fire Department Chief Charles Hood.
Firefighters responded to the blaze at around 3 a.m. Saturday after receiving a 911 call in which people could be heard screaming in the background, Hood said.

Police officers who first arrived at the home kicked in a door and also heard people inside screaming for help, Hood said.
Six people — three adults and three children — were rescued from the home.
