Washington: Four persons were killed in a fire at a house in the US state of Tennessee. Three Indian teenage siblings were among four persons killed. The incident took place just two days ahead of Christmas. The fire killed a woman and three Indian teens from Telangana who were staying with her family for the holidays in a suburb of Memphis, Tennessee.

     “Kari Coudriet—of Collierville, Tennessee—as well as Sharron (17), Joy (15) and Aaron (14)—teen siblings of the Naik family from India—all died in the fire”, a newspaper reported, quoting a statement issued by the Collierville Bible Church.

       “A fire started around 11 pm at the Coudriet home (on December 23). The family was hosting, housing and celebrating Christmas with three teenagers attending an academy here in the states. The Naik family are missionaries in India that our church supports,” the church said.
