Six children left alone in a South Philadelphia row house died in a brief but intense fire early Sunday morning.

Two children, a 9-year-old girl and an 11-year-old boy, escaped with minor injuries, said a spokesman for the Fire Marshal's office.

The children's mother had just left the house before the fire broke out. No charges have been filed.
